What if your biggest mistake is that you never make mistakes?


"Self help that works.... A book every joy-seeking woman should read."
— Editor's Choice

"Bold, bossy and bracing, 'Fail Fast, Fail Often' is like a 200-page shot of B12, meant to energize the listless job seeker."
—The New York Times, December 27, 2013.

“If you're not occasionally failing, you're not trying hard enough. Fail Fast, Fail Often offers helpful tactics for conquering paralyzing fear and taking the strategic risks necessary for success.”
—Todd Henry, author of Die Empty and The Accidental Creative

“Fail Fast, Fail Often vigorously examines the counterintuitive idea that not striving for instant perfection is essential to the creative process.”
—Carl Alasko, author of Say This, Not That and Emotional Bullshit  

Ryan Babineaux, executive coach and creator of the popular Stanford University course “Fail Fast, Fail Often,” has come to a compelling conclusion: happy and successful people tend to spend less time planning and more time acting. They get out into the world, try new things, and make mistakes, and in doing so, they benefit from unexpected experiences and opportunities. Drawing on the author's research in human development and innovation, Fail Fast, Fail Often shows readers how to allow their enthusiasm to guide them, to act boldly, and to leverage their strengths.
