A hierarchy of failure (from brave to shameful)

   > Mistakes! A series of failures as you follow a path of persistent long-term effort characterized by
      ongoing learning and a reputation that improves over time.   
   > The giant flame out   
   > Giving up in the dip   
   > Shortcuts   
   > Not starting   
   > The critic, on the sidelines   
   > Empty hype   
   > The scam, the short-sighted selfish pitch
 
It's the flame outs and the scams that get all the publicity, but it's the long-term commitment that pays off. I have nothing but applause for those brave enough to fail, and fail again. It's not so much a failure as it is one more thing that won't work.
 
And the critics and the non-starters? They will get little respect from me.
 
Some say, "go big or stay home," but I prefer, "keep going." Drip by drip.
