@thoughtstorms It's actually called SCRAP.

Can anyone tell me more about the "SCRAB" ... i googled ["san francisco unified school district" donation reclamation] with no good results. He doesn't say the name very clearly. I'm not in California, but i think i'd like them in my contacts. Great video! I'm better at the unmitigated failures (Visitor above was right in her\his quibble) than Adam is, but i keep trying.

Failure is the work to achieve the reward of success

I'm a civil engineering major at my school and it is always inspirational to listen to this guy. I want his obsession and his love for what he does.

"Savage talks about failure - unmitigated, colossal failures he's experienced during his career." No he doesn't. Failure is when you're spending 3 years trying to do something and your life just goes backwards. In fact, example 1 may be a failure (to install the machine as they wanted) but it's definitely not unmitigated: he got a ton of money out of it, and the job was nearly impossible due to the laws of physics. That's mitigation. This is the kind of failure you use when you're asked at a job interview to tell of a situation where you failed.

I think that the most important thing about the failures in life is what you learn and I think he presented that. If we could be successful at everything that we tried would we still want to do it? Or is it the occasional failures and risk of failing in every attempt that makes the result worthwhile?
