Thomas Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. When a reporter asked, “How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?” Edison replied, “I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.”
Henry Ford failed and went broke five times before he succeeded. R. H. Macy failed seven times before his store in New York City caught on. There is a professor at MIT who offers a course on failure. He does that, he says, “because failure is a far more common experience than success.” An interviewer once asked him if anybody ever failed the course on failure. He thought a moment and replied, “No, but there were two incompletes.”
These are a few reasons to just keep at it. Here at Nadco, we keep working with you until your idea/invention/product is realized. Currently we are working on several pieces that started out as an idea with a rough sketch. Very soon these products will hit the market, although we can’t divulge any information about them, Nadco is busy making prototypes to send to the customers for testing. If you think your idea has value, give us a call and talk it over with our sales team.
You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don’t try.
