To err and succeed

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life.             And that is why I succeed.

I read this quote at the back of some lecture notes from Professor John Hattie from New Zealand who was on about encouraging a culture of risk taking so that errors are welcomed. I know some students who are basketball mad at my school might relate to this comment.
