Unrealized projects

Even really smart and creative people fail a lot, as noted by Seth Godin.

When I was at MOMA last week, I saw a list of director and artist Tim Burton’s projects. Here’s the guy who’s responsible for some of the most breathtaking movies of his generation, and the real surprise is this: almost every year over the last thirty, he worked on one or more exciting projects that were never green lighted and produced. Every year, he spent an enormous amount of time on failed projects.

Do you fail big-time every year? Do you win big-time every year?
