The Art of Failure

An article written by Malcom Gladwell, working for the New Yorker, discusses how the human mind leads us to failure. Gladwell takes an interesting approach to describe

how we fail and asks the question “are all forms of failure equal?” He uses the two words  ”choking” and “panicking” to define the types of failure that many of us experience and even though many may think these two words are one inthey arefact very specific and different terms. Gladwell goes into detail about the differences through studies and examples of tennis matches, Greg Norman’s loss at the Masters, and the plane crash that took John F. Kennedy’s life and how their situations lead them to failure for different reasons.
