Tell me about a time you have failed at a project in your life.

User Submitted Interview Answers

1.
I would not use the word "failed" but rather reworked an issue. I had dreamed of writing a book and after 7 years of spending hours every day writing the perfect novel, I completed it. Just as I began the daunting task of finding an agent, my mom became 100% disabled and bedridden. I decided that I needed to postpone my agent search to completely care for my mom. I cared for her for 2 years and during that time I often felt that I would never get the chance to get my book published. I told myself that I would eventually reach my goal but when my mom passed away, I realized that my ultimate goal of getting my book published was not my true goal. I learned that I was not ever interested in the actual publishing but rather the feeling of accomplishment just be writing my book. I no longer beat myself up for putting my dreams on hold and relished in the reality that not only did I get to have 2 wonderful years with my mom, but I still had my novel to pass on to my children.
 
2.
We had a contest at work to see who could sell the most bags of retail coffee. Despite my best efforts, I was not able to meet my goal. However, this experience helped me become a better sales person and my desire to succeed was contagious- we went from being one of the lowest ranked bars in this regard to being near the top!
