Play Feel the FOFU: that one time I nearly killed everyone but it worked out OK
In aviation, they say a good landing is one you walk away from. I reckon a great landing is one you can walk away from with a lesson. Sometimes the ones you learn the most from are the ones that seem more like a crash than an arrival. In this session I’ll be exploring the idea of FOFU – Fear Of Fouling Up – and how those foul-ups can teach us more than one hundred perfect landings. I’ll be picking apart a real life experience that taught me about systems failure, communications, UX (before UX was a thing), perspective and, most crucially, how to turn foul-ups into the foundations for career success.
