There’s an ancient Greek myth about a guy named Icarus.
His father created wings made of feathers and wax. “Don’t fly too close to the sun,” said his father, “or the wax will melt and you’ll come crashing back to Earth.”
Icarus ignored the warning and plunged to his death. This story wasn’t supposed to keep Greeks from building wings.It warned people to heed good advice.
We can crash, burn and learn from our mistakes.But learning from the mistakes of others is a lot less painful.
