Article: Failure Is Not The Worst Outcome, Mediocrity Is

Read a good article today called Failure Is Not The Worst Outcome, Mediocrity Is

Great read for me. The key quote:

“Here’s the big lesson: Many founders think that the worst outcome you can have in a startup is failure. You try something and it fails. And yes, failing is no fun. But, what’s worse than failing is going sideways for years and years. The worst is being stuck in a quagmire of mediocrity. Things are going reasonably well, but not spectacularly well. The reason mediocrity is worse than failure is very simple: Failure lets you move on, mediocrity stalls you and keeps you from reaching your potential.”
