Im not sure how many people around here still follow Tucker Max, but I subscribed to his new blog a while ago, so I get email updates on new blog posts. I thought the newest one was an interesting read. The TL;DR of it is self-reflection sprinkled with self-deprecation, including his hind-sight perspective on the failure of the movie. As we all know, TiB exists as its current self today because his movie failed so badly that he cratered the message board and subsequently, much of his fan base. But I thought this post, and posts in general on his new site have been interesting. Learning from failure is hard because introspection isnt easy, and is sometimes too much for some people. I've seen it in my father in law who was a piece of shit earlier in life and has spent the last 15 years trying to make up for it. In my own life I've tried to learn from failures as much as I can, with mixed results. Focus: How have you learned from your past failures? Alt Focus: What failures are you still repeating that you cant break the cycle of? Alt Alt Focus: What people in your life do you wish could break the cycle of failure?
