I loved Lincoln Logs when I was a kid. Though I never entertained the idea that I would be a designer, engineer or architect, something about putting together these wooden and plastic pieces was simply simple fun. Connecting to ideas through the blogosphere seems similar to this pursuit, hence the title of this weekly post. Each Friday, I intend to post something interesting I’ve read out there on the internets. Hopefully others will find these posts as thought provoking as I have.

Anna Almendarala gets it. She knows that, in order to realize success, we have to undestand failure. In a recent article by Ms. Almendarala in the Huffington Post, she cites the curriculum vitae that Johannes Haushofer, an assistant professor of psychology and public affairs, posted online last week. It listed not his achievements and successes, but his failures. It made a brilliant point in a very cool way: don’t the thinks we reached for and missed say as much about us as those things we succeeded at grasping?
