You won’t see me link to ESPN too many times, so enjoy (emphasis mine):
“If you want to be a success, you need a couple years,” Jokic said after Monday’s title game. "You need to be bad, then you need to be good, then when you’re good you need to fail, and then when you fail, you’re going to figure it out.
“There is a process – there are steps that you need to fill – and there are no shortcuts. It’s a journey, and I’m glad that I’m part of the journey.”
This is, of course, true in absolutely every field of human endeavor, but in too many of those fields any failure, let alone failing repeatedly, is just not an option. And we are all worse for it.
