Failing Badly Vs. Failing Well - Lessons from Anne of Green Gables

This is the most tragical thing that has ever happened to me! **bursts into tears**

Okay, maybe not. Actually, I've just been watching Anne of Green Gables too much. (if there is a such thing!) But believe it or not, Anne can give us a lesson in failing well and failing badly.

You see, failing badly and failing well are terms that generally refer to a system or a structure. But I think people can also fail in either of those two ways.

I met my heroes . . . And they know my name!

John Fornof - Writer/Producer

Last week I experienced one of the most exhilarating feelings in the world. I got to meet some of my heroes.

But I didn't just meet them.
I got their autographs.
I got my picture taken with them.
I listened to them speak.
I talked with them.
I had lunch with them.
I prayed with them.
I got to know the people behind the names.

It was amazing.

"I have NO idea what that just said!"
