“A man can fail many times, but he isn’t a failure until he begins to blame somebody else.” – John Burroughs
Jacque Fresco is 91-years-old. He is a fascinating picture of a human being. He has not limited his thinking or his attempts. He is a futurist who has conceptualized what buildings, ecosystems and life may look like by design. A movie that captures his brilliance and vision has been created.
Most of us will not live as long as Mr. Fresco. Many will not dare to think big like he has. One thing we can do, however, is adopt one simple behavior that has been the strand which has stitched his life together – constantly growing and failing forward.
Catch yourself when you get frustrated at yourself and others. Beware when you rationalize and make excuses. Those are signs of your mindset. You will eventually just grow old rather than grow.
