People shouldn’t label themselves as ‘failures’. Failing is a behaviour and there are different kinds. I’m starting to use the term ‘failer’ (TM):
Someone, with improvement as their purpose, deliberately operating at the edge of their ability which inevitably leads to learning opportunities.
If we don’t do the learning bit, then we can give ourselves a judgey label. Perhaps, ‘doofus’?
This comment started as a joke comment on a FaceBook post but I liked where it went, and thought to myself, “This is going straight to the pool room. ( I mean, my blog…)”
