I love the Business Insider article 11 Dumb Moves That Should Have Cost Mark Zuckerberg His $25 Billion Fortune.

My favorite anecdote comes at the end and is about Steve Jobs:

Even the most successful geniuses have bad ideas and get lucky!

Steve Jobs, for example, didn't want third-party apps on the iPhone.

Woops!

He was talked out of this stance, to everyone's benefit.

No startup is free from screw-ups, so it's best to be resilient.

Thank you, Steve Jobs.
