Imagine turning up for work each day and your team collectively asking:
“Hey, how are we going to kill our project today?”
Or working in an environment where you get to bring to life some of the most audacious and out-of-the-box projects with the intention to radically change the world?
Somewhere where your ability to shift your perspective and pivot is almost more important than being smart?
And where each project’s trial before making it to the development stage involves you continually finding ways to poke holes in it so only the most robust projects make it off the cutting room floor?
Welcome to the Moonshot Factory, or “X” as it’s formally known, where Astro Teller’s team is on a mission to solve the world’s biggest problems through some incredibly crazy experiments.
“Enthusiastic skepticism is not the enemy of boundless optimism. It’s optimism’s perfect partner. It unlocks the potential in every idea.” – Astro Teller
In the above TED Talk, Astro shares how by celebrating failure, his team is able to embrace working on risky and radical projects because it’s been built into their team and business ethos.
This video will have you looking at “failure” with a new found respect and teach you a thing or two about how to chase those big dreams… the riskier the better.
