Victory through failure

The status code you want to get from Microsoft: ERROR_SUCCESS. Or the next best, ERROR_SUCCESS_REBOOT_INITIATED.

Often in life our biggest victories, the best surprises, come out of failure to get what we thought we wanted.

And the best successes of all cause a reboot – a re-evaluation of what’s important, as we learn whole new parts of ourselves. New drivers installed. Reboot to integrate new hardware, new connections in our brains and our relationships.
