I heard the term “successful failure” for the first time while listening to the radio the other day. I guess by using the term “successful failure”, he was saying that he learned by his mistake. I thought about how we could apply that term to our beekeeping on a regular basis.
The main thing to do when things go wrong or fail is to learn from the experience & try to do better next time.
As heartbreaking as it is to lose a colony, I don’t think there would be an experienced beekeeper that has never felt that heartbreaking feeling.
