Enjoy this talk on YouTube by Astro Teller, the head of X (formerly Google X) about the amazing work they do by accepting—even inviting and celebrating—failure.
Big issues require big thinking. They require you to become untethered—to adopt the moonshot factory thinking that X does. It requires comfort with experimentation and failure.
You don’t have to be focused on solving world hunger or developing self-driving cars to benefit from a leader and a team that challenges processes, looks outside their boundaries to find new ideas, tries new things, and supports each other (even cheers) when they fail.
Can you take more reasonable risks to do more in your organization? What’s your moonshot?
