James shares a story of his pursuit of another one of his passions in music, and how a recent track he created perfectly exemplifies the type of failure you want to invite into your life. He then dissects the differences between controlled and terminal failure, and discusses how his aversion to failure while in the role of CEO actually proved to be a detriment to the cause.
