Another Fail (Up?)
Will Smith talks about failing up. I guess I'm not afraid of heights because that big festival I've been planning is now canceled. LOL Stockholm 2018 is now over. Fini. Caput. A wrap. I knew it was over a couple of days ago but it hit me today because I had to email all of the performers and tell them that they can now book some other shit since this thing is dead.
It was by definition a failure. I set out to do something and it will never happen. But somehow it showed me that I can really pull off something big like that. I went into it wondering if I could make it happen and in the end the only thing that got in the way was funding. I had successfully planned and organized the entire thing. When I hit send on that email I had already mentally started planning an even better festival. I guess I failed up. It feels good.
I don't mean to be all sunshine, light at the end of the tunnel, but I truly believe this failure is setting up something bigger and better. Stay tuned because there really is more to come. Until next time...
