Failure is painful george.m.stamos@gmail.com /// Title: Agile Mindset Fails 3/1/2014 3

BUT “ Most successful people in every field don't consider failure to be a particularly painful experience–because they think about it differently ” george.m.stamos@gmail.com /// Title: Agile Mindset Fails 3/1/2014 4

Reminder “ The important thing is how do you learn from your failures? Take the word "failure" and turn it into a positive! ” george.m.stamos@gmail.com /// Title: Agile Mindset Fails 3/1/2014 5

Forget Forget about the past failures in your life. Yesterday is a canceled check, today is cold hard cash, and tomorrow is a promissory note. Tomorrow is not guaranteed and furthermore may never arrive so all you have is the now-the present. Forget about what did not work out as planned, why you failed and move on. george.m.stamos@gmail.com /// Title: Agile Mindset Fails 3/1/2014 7

Accept Accept why things did not work out as planned and why you did not succeed as planned-regardless as to whether you were victimized or wronged is irrelevant. Accept the facts as facts which is part of the personal growth process in moving forward in reaching your goals. george.m.stamos@gmail.com /// Title: Agile Mindset Fails 3/1/2014 8

Investigate Investigate why you failed in areas of your personal and professional life. Knowing what the specific steps you took will help you to avoid some of the same mistakes in your goal setting plan. george.m.stamos@gmail.com /// Title: Agile Mindset Fails 3/1/2014 9

Look Look for alternative ways or solutions in reaching your destination. Remember: it took Thomas Edison over 14,000 failed attempts before he perfected the light bulb that the entire world has come to use in our daily lives. Remember: Perseverance holds the key to success. george.m.stamos@gmail.com /// Title: Agile Mindset Fails 3/1/2014 10

Understand Understand that you are not a failure in life. Every one of us fails at something-some more than others. Understand what you did wrong, and make a mental note what you need to improve upon next moving forward in your personal goal setting. george.m.stamos@gmail.com /// Title: Agile Mindset Fails 3/1/2014 11

Re-evaluate Re-evaluate your overall personal goal setting plan of action, maybe you need to remove some tasks or steps in prioritizing things before you can reach your objective. Think objectively and be honest with yourself regarding where you want to go and how you plan on getting to your ultimate destination. This could be a day, a week or a month process. It is important not to rush through this process -so you do not have to revisit failed attempts yet a second time. george.m.stamos@gmail.com /// Title: Agile Mindset Fails 3/1/2014 12

Entrust Entrust yourself to try again, to not give up on your goal setting plan objectives, regardless of how many times you fail at it. Each step in the right direction pushes you and motivates you to completing and finishing your goals. Remember it’s a marathon-not a race! george.m.stamos@gmail.com /// Title: Agile Mindset Fails 3/1/2014 13
