JK Rowling on the benefits of failure

Happy New Year to everyone.

Sorry for being a bad blogger! It's 11th January and I am just getting round to my first post of the year. Even then I'm still catching up so it is a short one just to show you a video I came across today. I certainly found it both entertaining and inspiring - some of you may have seen it before.

In the current economic climate, I am sure that many of us might feel that we are failing in some way. In this video of her Harvard Commencement address from 2008, Harry Potter author, JK Rowling talks about how important failure was to her success.

I hope you enjoy.
