TBF 130 :: Five Farm Failures in 2015 and a Hard Lesson Learned

5farmfailuresSometimes admitting that you have failed is difficult because you don't want to think about the fact that you haven't accomplished a goal or something that you are passionate about. Other times admitting a failure comes all too easy because you are just looking for a way to put yourself down. In my seven years on the farm I have had more failures that I could count or even would care to remember, and in that time I have both found myself unwilling to admit failure or just the opposite ... looking for a way to accuse myself of failure.
When I look back on 2015 I recognize many failures on my farm. Some came from lack of planning, some came because I didn't follow through, and some even came because I was just plain negligent. But, my reason for looking back on my failures is not because I have a desire to, "feel sorry for myself" or even have you feel sorry form. I want to look back at some of the "highlights" of my failures so that I can look forward to the coming year on the farm. By looking back on my failures I can see potential changes that need to be made, but more importantly I can see areas in my farming life where I need to watch myself extra carefully so I don't fall in to the same traps.
