How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big

How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big

Scott Adams

Overview

We all have the occasional episode of "I should be much further along in life." We look back at the past few months, maybe even a year or two, and wonder what went wrong. Often, it's nothing. We're just not patient enough. Even lots of young people are kicking themselves, but who ever 'made it' before they turned 30? By that age, most of us haven't even begun working on our real career. When he was 30, Harrison Ford was still a carpenter, not an actor. Andrea Bocelli only played the piano in bars until 33. And the founder of Mary Kay sold books door-to-door until she was 45.

For Scott Adams, the creator of the world-famous Dilbert office cartoon, life's path wound just the same. Through many jobs, failed startups, and useless patents, he eventually found an outlet that made his failures accessible to the world. Now, Dilbert has been in circulation for almost 30 years. In How To Fail At Almost Everything And Still Win Big, Adams shares his story, along with the lessons he learned about keeping himself motivated, healthy, and happy while racking up all the failures that ultimately led to his success.

"The most important form of selfishness involves spending time on your fitness, eating right, pursuing your career, and still spending quality time with your family and friends"
