Fail fast to succeed faster

  • Rick tells us that he is now a certified specialist in Immigration and Naturalization Law.  He took the written exam in 2007 with the approach that he knew “the stuff” because he had been practicing every day for years.  He failed the exam.  With that failure he realized that were many aspects of immigration law that he didn’t know and needed to learn for the certification.  When he retook the exam he passed handily.

Tell us something good
