Life Work - Try Ironing pillow cases

By Eileen McDargh - Saturday, October 29, 2011

At 5am this morning, I listen to a colleague’s recording while I spray water on pillowcases. The hot steam presses out wrinkles. The cases crisp up and soften. I grab for the top sheet and iron three-quarters of it. Who cares where it tucks into the bottom of the bed. I then start on the dishtowels. At last comes my white shirt. The seams lay flat now. The collar perks up with sizing.

An Example Of Praising Failure

By Eileen McDargh - Thursday, December 02, 2010
A while back I wrote an article " In Praise Of Failure" and recently I found the perfect example of one company celebrating failure in a unique way.  Ben & Jerry's, located in Waterbury, Vermont, has created a graveyard behind their factory of ice cream flavors that just didn't make the cut or had run their course.  Each flavor in the graveyard has a  plastic tombstone with a clever epitaph and is open to the public.  Every year on Halloween the tourist attraction is turned into a haunted graveyard much to the delight of both the parents and children who visit the factory.  The lesson learned is not to run away or hide business failures from your public but rather admit that you aren't perfect but you are learning.
