While we often hear that failure is a "necessary evil", Ed Catmull, co-founder of Pixar Animation and former President of Walt Disney Animation Studios advises us otherwise.

It is important to remember that the first time we try to do something that we are rarely successful.
This week on Curious Quotes, Points To Ponder, & Inspiring Insights, take on the theme of failure with five new slides. This quote from Ed Catmull has long been a favorite of mine, and is probably the most photographed slide of any that I have ever used. This is an updated version that uses Avenir Next in various weights. ENJOY!
