Daily Quote: Thomas Edison on Failure & Experiments

"Many of life's failures are experienced by people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up." --Thomas Edison

Hitting the target is important. But failures, near-misses and far-off-the-mark shots also have value.

Each so-called failure contains lessons and opportunities. And it's important to keep trying. Thomas Edison --the legendary inventor -- faced over 10,000 failed tests before successfully creating a battery of nickel and iron, according to Bo Bennett, author of Year to Success.
