Interview with Dr. Samuel West

Samuel West is a clinical psychologist with a PhD in Organizational Psychology. He is the founder and curator of the Museum of Failure. The museum’s message is that an acceptance of failure is essential for all innovation and that organizations need to improve their willingness to learn from failure.

The collection consists of over a hundred failed innovations including tech, food, business models and some stupid products that should never have made it past the brainstorming sessions. The museum has locations in Sweden and in Los Angeles, and the traveling exhibit is on global tour. Samuel is American-Icelandic and lives in Sweden.

#91 The History of Satire and the American Political Cartoon w/ Richard Samuel West

Read more

In this episode of The Road to Now, Richard Samuel West joins Bob and Ben for a conversation on the history of political cartoons in the United States. West tells of how political cartoonists went from independent artists in the early 19th century who sold their work on the streets to become powerful actors in American politics just a few decades later. He also explains how technological and social forces led to the rise, and eventual fall, of political cartoons as a form of satire, and how one of America’s most powerful and corrupt crime bosses was brought down by a single artist and his drawings.

Richard Samuel West is the coauthor of What Fools These Mortals Be: The History of Puck (IDW Publishing, 2014 w/ forward by Bill Waterson) and the founder of Periodyssey, which specializes in “significant and unusual American paper.”

Samuel West on The Museum of Failure

Read more

Bored and tired of the worship and glorification of success, Sam West founded the Museum of Failure in Sweden last summer, to take away the stigma of failure and instead see it as an integral part of progress. The Museum of Failure has come to Downtown Los Angeles where the Other F Word team met with Sam to tour the exhibit and explore the collection of over 130 failed products and services from all over the world.  From a rental sex doll to Trump University, from Swedish Fish flavored Oreos to The Betamax, failure is highlighted and celebrated. With wit, humor, and intelligence, Sam articulates his views on failure and its role in learning, combating the norm of manufactured perfection and allowing for more freedom for authenticity.

About Your Host Jim Harshaw

My name is Jim Harshaw. And I know where you’re at. You’re working hard and qualified for what you do but you aren’t getting what you want. You have plans on getting to the C-suite or launching a business but ultimate success seems as far away today as ever. You’re at the right place because you can get there from here.

 And I can help.

 Who I Am

I’m a speaker, coach, and former Division I All-American wrestler that helps motivated former athletes to reach their full potential by getting clarity on what they really want and taking aggressive action to lead their ideal life not just despite their prior failures but because of them.

I’m a husband and father of four. And I’m a serial entrepreneur. I’ve launched multiple successful businesses as well as the obligatory failed one. I’ve been the executive director of a non-profit and have raised millions of dollars. I’ve worked in sales. I’ve even been a Division I head coach. While I was born in a blue-collar home I have spent my life surrounded by Olympians, CEO’s and millionaires.

Jim Rohn said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”

I’ve been lucky.

I’ve learned the habits of successful people and guess what. You’re just like them. I know because I know your type. You’re programmed for hard work, which is a prerequisite for success, but you’ve never been shown how to use what you know to create the life you want with the tools you have.

I will show you how.

Why You are Here

You've worked hard to achieve greatness. You’ve set goals and maybe even set records. You’ve definitely failed and you’ve at some point found yourself questioning if you were on the right track.

You need to understand this: You are far more prepared to succeed than those who’ve not tried, competed, struggled and overcome like you have. That’s the value of your education as someone who aims high. You are prepared to be as successful as your wildest dreams will allow.

Here I will teach you, with the help of brilliant minds that have been shaped by failure, struggle, and adversity, to be who you want to be. I sense that you want this because you have read this far.
