    Have you ever thought of a new method or campaign, and you think it is the best in the world, you put so much effort into it, and the result = epic fail.

    I'm sure many of you have experienced this before.

    To cope with this, I:
    1. Go outside for some fresh air
    2. Clean my room, get organized.
    3. Put on the Garden State soundtrack
    4. Watch some food network or ESPN; always gets your hopes up.
    5. Read the thread by Essential Clix - "Black Hat Success! Never Give up!"

    How do you cope with failure?

    When I get to the point where I am feeling despair for the project I just hit select all/delete. That way I never have to waste time going back to it and try to figure out what went wrong. I can't afford to have that kind of stress in my life. Then I am free to focus more of my attention on what is working and begin something else without the baggage of the failures.

    Sit on my computer and make myself feel productive by going through the shitty methods on bhw in hopes of finding one that actually works

    I don't consider it failure, I think of it as feedback.

    I welcome the feedback so I can change/update my plans as needed.

    I hop on my mororcycle and go for a full day ride. It's the best way I've found to clear the head and get a fresh start

    I'll tell myself "fuck this" and shut down my pc, start up my car and go to my local video store and buy some blu-ray comedy movies and laugh like a clown for a few hours and get back to work like a bull.
