“What do I tell a team that has failed? Well, I expect teams to fail. If they aren’t occasionally failing, then we aren’t pushing hard enough, we aren’t pushing boundaries enough.

Let’s put those lessons in our head.’ And then, in the infamous words of Jay-Z, ‘Brush the dirt off our shoulders and hit it again.’ ” — Eric VishriaAB
