Conscious failure engenders learning processes, in other words: the attempt to think, act and become smarter. Hence one has to consider failure as a quality and not as defeat – which, psychologically, is not easy to do. Success has a calming effect, engenders inattentiveness and only apparently simplifies the subsequent work steps.
One problem, however, remains: who decides whether something has failed, is still pending, or is already a success? In practical terms, one can only do that oneself – or a highly qualified audience can do so. Such an audience would also applaud an intelligent failure.
