How to fail better

"It is weaker to let things rot than risk a cure that might not completely work. It is the weak who neither learn from small mistakes nor own up to big ones. Taking responsibility for our mistakes and being prepared to make the right kind requires strength, and builds it."
Short piece in this week's New Statesman, based on my much longer Demos pamphlet, Mistaking Mistakes.
