What is the largest room in the world?

The largest room in the world is the room for improvement.

I read this line in a weekly newsletter from User Interface Engineering, Failure Is Not an Option -- It's a Requirement.

Their articles are usually specific to usability testing, but this one has a broad message that's good for any organization and even for anyone personally.

It says that a company that embraces mistakes or failure is in the best position to learn and grow from them.

The article also has a list of common mistakes and provides you a chance to learn from others mistakes (novel concept).

A couple other good quotes:

"Good judgment comes from experience and experience comes from bad judgments."

"Experience is the name everyone gives their mistakes."

I'm back

It's been awhile since my last post, not that I publish that frequently anyway. However...

Just got back from a trip of a lifetime tour of Greece.
