Good judgement comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgement.

Leo F. Buscaglia said: We always think of failure as the antithesis of success, but it isn’t. Success often lies just the other side of failure.

In 2012 Harvard Business Review devoted an entire issue of that publication to the topic of how to learn from failures. In one of the articles, Professor Amy C. Edmondson noted, "Not all failures are created equal" and that in business there are three main kinds of failures, some of which are better than others.

First, there are failures that result from the lack of precision in routine but important matters—for example, a failure to follow design specifications in the manufacturing process. According to Professor Edmondson, these are “bad” failures that are preventable and should be eliminated as quickly as possible.

Second, there are failures that are the inevitable results of complexity in processes—mistakes made in uncontrollable situations, such as in triage in a hospital emergency room. These failures are unavoidable and cannot be controlled, but they can be managed.

Finally, there are failures that occur when researchers try to push the frontiers of knowledge with regard to a product or service—failures made by a research lab in developing a new product, for example. These failures can be “good” failures if structured in the right way because they can accelerate the learning process.

If we are to fail successfully—if failure is to move us along in our quest for perfection—we need to make similar distinctions in our daily efforts and daily failures. We should not be afraid of "good failures" those resulting from efforts to extend the frontiers of our knowledge. Thus, we should not be so fearful of failing that we avoid trying new or hard things merely because their very newness or difficulty increases the risk of failure.
Karl Maeser, a 19th century educator said:
“Only those who have the courage to make mistakes ever learn worthwhile lessons and truths.”

So be wise to identify the right risks and be courageous to take those risks in order to learn to fail successfully.
