Failure is inevitable when you need to grow and progress. The most crucial thing about failed projects is that we learn from them. As we have seen from numerous successes, rejection is not the end of success.
Failed projects happen for numerous reasons: lack of preparation, client issues, technological difficulties, skill gaps and more. To do the same thing over and again and expect a different result is insanity.
So we met 5 creatives to ask them, “What key lessons have you learnt from failed projects?”

These creatives have given some note-worthy lessons that we can definitely earn from. Personally, there are quite a number of take-homes from this episode of the Creative Gist.
Experience is the best teacher, and learning from others’ experiences gives you a full package.
What lessons did you learn from any of your failed projects?
