I like the spirit of this 8 minute youtube video from Honda Racing. I’ve had little success in convincing legislators or school superintendents of the long term strategic importance of having more Mandarin in the public schools or of having more high school students study abroad. The video gives me a bit of a lift.
As Rob Jacobs wrote on his blog “Education Innovation” where I first saw this video (here):
It reminds us that to learn and improve we need to:
- Take risks
- See failure as means to move forward and succeed.
- You can fail many times, but you only have to succeed once.
