Let’s have a moment of silence for those who have tried and have failed. Here are just a few. We’re sure you’ll recognize a few: Sir James Dyson, Steven Spielberg, Thomas Edison, Walt Disney, Albert Einstein, J.K. Rowling, Abraham Lincoln, Jerry Seinfeld… the list goes on and on. But, as you’ll also know, they all just dusted themselves off and started all over again . . with some measure of success, to put in mildly.
So, with some pride and acknowledgment, let’s go one step further and introduce you to the Museum of Failure in New York City. As they say on their site, they are a collection of failed products and services from around the world. The majority of all innovation projects fail and the museum showcases these failures to provide visitors a fascinating learning experience. Every item provides unique insight into the risky business of innovation. At times sad, happy and … mind-bloggling, this museum with leave you with a whole new appreciation of what the word persistence means.
