The Importance of Failure

Today I'm taking a break from the usual posting of religious people doing something ridiculous. This video is really very entertaining and makes for a great life lesson. It's a bit long (45 minutes) but it's absolutely worth watching. If you're busy, you should come back to this later and watch it entirely.

During The Amazing Meeting 7 (in 2009), Adam Savage from Mythbusters spoke about the importance of his failures and how they shaped him. JREF has now put the video online:



On a side note, my blog has reached 666 followers! I give thanks to all my fellow heathens.

  2. It's interesting to see people like Adam and actually realise they are people, who make mistakes and struggle to get where they are.

  11. Adam Savage needs to be eliminated on Mtyhbusters. In fact, the whole show should be eliminated.
