“Stubborn, Yet Flexible”

May 11, 2018 | Friday Quotes

If you’re not stubborn, you’ll give up on experiments too soon. And if you’re not flexible, you’ll pound your head against the wall and you won’t see a different solution to a problem you’re trying to solve.”

If you look at the history of successful people, you’ll find all of them aren’t afraid to fail; rather, they learn from failure. Think about this regarding your success as a safety professional: rarely do perfectly planned safety systems work right out of the box. Instead, they reflect drive and adaptability: those are the keys of success in safety.
