Failure is Always an Option, by Worth Parker

Failure being an option is something that we typically don't ever talk about, much less condone. But, as Lt Col. Parker says, "taking the risk of failure and consequently expanding your comfort zone." What lessons you learn through failure are some of the greatest lessons you can learn. Every person on this forum, vetted or unvetted, black tagged or green tagged, has at one point failed at something. Some of us having failed more than others. But, at least you can always say you tried. That is more than what many people can say.

Absolutely. I don't recall saying to quit, but sometimes you need to accept failure in order to reboot to try something different.
