Fear of failure stops people in their tracks. There are some people who don’t sweat under pressure and others who push through their fear of failure and change themselves. Why do some people tolerate failure more than others?
Every organization, of any size, has a culture. Whether it was defined at the start or it wasn’t; it has one.

I’m a learner. There are many sources of learning, podcasts are one of them. I listen to quite a few on a weekly basis and have learned, and keep learning, from listening to podcasts. So I was a little surprised by a tweet I came across last week where Vedant Rusty said the following:
