I think that a major revamp of university admissions to reduce the emphasis on numerical grades and increase the importance of personal narratives (including failure) would encourage high school students to become more well-rounded. In doing so, students would experience failure in a variety of contexts and be able to develop the tools to address failure in scenarios with relatively lower stakes. The notion of fail forward is powerful if we’re trying to inspire creativity in our younger generations.
