Here is another good card from Indexed! If I were drawing this card, I would likely switch the positions of Learning and Progress – with the idea that learning is the intersection between failure and progress. But it is likely the case that progress can be the intersection between learning and failure as well. One of the things I like about this card specifically is that it is about progress and not “success.” To me, progress itself implies a process of learning, moving toward something in an ongoing way, whereas success implies some end point of achievement. And who ever reaches that?
Venn diagrams such as this are a great way to show intersections. I’ve been playing around with a few of my own. Here’s my latest:
It clearly shows the relationship between three things that should probably never be put together. Sometimes learning and progress are a result of keenly understanding your own limits.
