Resume of Failure

“Most of what I try fails, but these failures are often invisible, while the successes are visible. I have noticed this sometimes gives others the impression that most things work out for me.

 

As a result, they are more likely to attribute their own failures to themselves, rather than the fact that the world is stochastic, applications are crapshoots, and selection committees and referees have bad days.”

 

-Johannes Haushofer
