QUOTE: On trying to prevent mistakes.

by Jeff V. on July 19, 2010

“We all know the saying it’s better to ask for forgiveness than permission. And everyone knows that, but I think there is a corollary: If everyone is trying to prevent error, it screws things up. It’s better to fix problems than to prevent them. And the natural tendency for managers is to try and prevent error and overplan things.”

Ed Catmull, President of Pixar
