Golden Pineapple Award

Thomas Edison said:

I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.

In a German phrase you can get the “golden pineapple”. Mostly used in soccer games, meaning an irrelevant solution.

In our successes orientated society, we only talk about working solutions or successful solutions. But everyone’s way is full of failures. Life is not like a movie, nothing works at the first try. It is a part of life to try and fail. Failure is part of the way and it can be also a success.

The Golden Pineapple award is for all the not-working solutions, for all those who went all the way through failures. For them who embrace their not successful tries, because every failure is a solution!
