People who know me know very well how much I believe in social media and its powers. While I’m a big believer in digital and social, one of my biggest grouse is that we only portray the good side of things. We bury the unpleasant stuff and only portray the shiny side of ourselves. This is not a good representation of our life. One of the conscious decisions I have taken is to share both the good and bad things in my life. Afterall, we are human and we should not be afraid to share our failures. This is what motivated me to make this infographic of my failures.
It was wonderful to see this poster at a school I spoke at recently. When mistakes are not frowned upon, it encourages kids to boldly try new things. That’s when growth happens.
