Gapingvoid - scrunched

   

James Dyson turns 69 today and celebrated by hitting a new high on the Sunday Times Rich List this week reaching #17 in the UK with his £5 billion pound empire (a £1.5 billion increase from last year). Of course, such phenomenal success is built on a solid foundation of failure…

  • “Five thousand one hundred and twenty-six failed vacuum cleaners. That’s how many prototypes it took for James Dyson to get it right. 5, 127 was his lucky number. He’s now worth over $4 billion. It’s not about being brilliant, or about always being right. It’s about not giving up before you have the chance to succeed.”

Or as Hugh says, “failures scrunched together”…
