What is your reaction when an idea fails?
I use to sulk and ponder for days on what went wrong. Obviously it meant a lot of wastage of time and energy. It used to drain me and leave exhausted.
The time has been a good teacher and i have learned that no matter what your calculations of succeeding an idea are, it could fail with certainty.
Every time I fail at something now, I look back at the things for potential miscalculation or potential mistakes I might have committed.
If there are identifiable and modifiable factors, i take a note.
If the factors are not modifiable, I take a note.
In either case, I have become wiser for the next project.
I would not say I am not disappointed when I fail now.
I do but I do not let it last more than a cup of coffee.
There are more projects to attend to.
How do you react when your idea fails? How do you manage yourself and your work
