• “A shoe manufacturer sends two sales representatives to a region of Africa to evaluate the prospects for shoe sales. One writes a telegram back to the home office- SITUATION HOPELESS STOP NO ONE WEARS SHOES. The second representative wires back the following message – GLORIOUS BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY STOP THEY HAVE NO SHOES.”

Today’s embrace of failure comes courtesy of my Dad, Edwin Lynn, who always is on the lookout for life lessons and has been regular source of material for posts. He is also person who doesn’t need a stint in the gulag to appreciate every day.

Happy Birthday Dad!
