Hey – welcome back!  We hope your new year  got off to a great start.  Now, as we all know, doing stuff isn’t always easy.  So many success stories tend to miss out on the dark days in the journey, which can lead us into a false sense of inadequacy when the shit hits the fan.

We were looking at a future topic for Throw Starfish – Imposter Syndrome – and in looking at the fascinating subject we resolved to have an honest discussion about failure and how we personally deal with it.

So as ever – here are the recommendations for your google searching if you’d like to explore some of the ways we deal with it, and of course – there’s our individual blogs ‘When the Shit Hits the Fan’ on our websites.
