In the article, "Psychology and the Agile Methodology," the concept of embracing failure was put under the microscope. In summary, although agile encourages failing fast and often, this can be a difficult concept for people to accept. This predisposition is due to modern expectations and the barriers pre-built into human nature. Most educational systems indoctrinate their students with the mental equation "hard work + time = success" and the "failure is not an option" mentality. There are many positives to this approach, but it can create unintentional mental roadblocks towards failure. In this article, let's look at failing fast from a slightly different angle. This refreshing direction might help some understand and embrace one of Agile's core concepts a little easier.
