“People always say Thomas Edison failed at making the light bulb a thousand times in a row. He didn’t fail. He was experimenting with different filaments of wire. He was trying new ideas. And he learned every time. Again, nothing is really ‘failure’. Unless you label it that way. And give up.

I treat everything as an experiment. It helps me start something new. And it helps me prevent getting stuck in the past.

FAILURE = EXPERIMENTATION”

-James Altucher

“When learning is connected to living, it is meaningful. It is not something that occurs at certain times, in certain places, with certain people. It occurs all the time, everywhere, and with everyone around us.” -Kerry McDonald

“Bad times have a scientific value. These are occasions a good learner would not miss.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Reroute yourself as many times as it takes.  Reinvent.” -Matt Mullenweg

“As the Financial Times reported yesterday, more than 1 million U.S. consumers are ‘at least two months behind on car loan repayments,’ noting that the delinquency rate in the $1.1 trillion market hit its highest level since 2009. And that’s not just limited to subprime borrowers. That figure includes everyone with a U.S. car loan….

The financial Times also cites, ‘Delinquencies on credit cards also rose by about the same amount over the period to 1.79% – the highest since 2011. The rise in bad loans comes despite persistently low borrowing costs and unemployment levels – suggesting lenders may be letting consumers take on bigger debt burdens than they can handle.

Lending to consumers with weak credit scores has been one of the fastest-growing parts of the industry. Still, the increased delinquency levels follow a period of rapid expansion and could be a natural consequence of that growth. Separate figures published on Thursday by the New York Federal Reserve showed the total amount of debt held by American households rose last year at the fastest clip since 2007.'” -Porter Stansberry
