Farewell, Frank

Frank McCourt passed away yesterday. He's one author who has left a big impact on myself, especially when he talks about being a teacher. I've read three of his books: Angela's Ashes (growing up in poverty-stricken Ireland), 'Tis (making a living as a young man in America) and Teacher Man (his days as a teacher).

"Success comes after failure"

A friend is doing a research on failures and problems in human resource management. When he presented the research topic, his supervisor interrupted, why not look at success instead of failure?

After all, the supervisor continued, success usually comes after failure.

I often forget this.
