My little hometown was buzzing this morning at 1:44am PST. SpaceX was due to launch. It was streaming live on the web. 1,000 people were anxiously awaiting at the launching area. Twitter was watching. The weather was perfect. Everything was in place for this…
Launch aborted: slightly high combustion chamber pressure on engine 5. Will adjust limits for countdown in a few days.

That was the most successful failure I’ve ever watched.

“If you have the stomach, fail again. And then again. That’s what a successful entrepreneur does better than most. Learn to fail fast and often without letting it derail your forward progress.” – Me
I did a couple of interviews this week: 10 Tips for Entrepreneurs & one of my biggest “failures” to date with my MyGDP. It seems Elon Musk & the SpaceX team know the playbook well, which means they’re also now getting ready for their rescheduled Tuesday launch.
