I'm no Edison

One of my favorite motivational quotes is one that's attributed to Thomas Edison. When asked if he felt like he was a failure for not figuring out the electric light, he is said to have said, "Failure? Nonsense! I have figured out 4,976 ways not to make a light bulb."

Okay, so I'm paraphrasing, and yes, I made up the number. But it was in the thousands, and it ended in 6. So close enough.

Today I had a lot of reason to remind myself of that quote. Okay, so I really only had four reasons to remind myself of that quote, but it took all day to come up with them. I learned four new ways how not to make a bezel today.

Hmm. 4,972 to go.
