Field Notes

These articles were originally featured on Field Notes, National Arts Strategies' ArtsJournal blog where we mine, distill and contextualize ideas; provide frameworks that anyone can use; and offer everyone in the field the opportunity to discuss the underlying issues.

The next time you fail, you will know that you are never alone. You’re among creative individuals like Toni Morrison, Perry Chen, Sarah Kaufman and countless others. Take a look at this amazing issue of NEA Arts Magazine on “The Art of Failure.” As we have illustrated on Field Notes this week, it is an art, one that you can practice and eventually (sort of) master. Remember to reflect, learn, and lead through failure. We'll be tuning back in next week with failure stories from the field. Don't miss it.

“Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”
