Fail Faster

The idea behind this excellent four minute video is - that since all of us are likely fail in almost everything we do (at least at first) - then the key to success is to fail faster.  The argument runs like this: no idea comes out fully formed, it needs to be tweaked, revised and perfected, but you have to get it out there to see how best to improve it.

The guys who made this are game designers, so their view is that if you don't keep testing your stuff, you will never create a good game. Of course, the principle goes way beyond games - it applies to just about anything that any of us do. Your ideas don't have to be perfect, you just have to get on with things. With is another way of saying - stop agonizing - and just do it.
