The ever-so-popular saying, “Fail faster” should always be followed by “… and always learn from each misstep.”
If you adopt this mentality, you’ll discover that failure is an incredible opportunity to learn something about yourself—both as a UX professional and as a persevering entrepreneur.
If you’re a freelance UX consultant, that sense of perspective becomes even more important. Painting a clear picture of each consulting gig is the groundwork for correctly positioning yourself to bring the most business value to a project. Failing to do so can lead to projects that go horribly wrong.
