Breakfast Babble is ED’s own little space on the interwebs where we gather to discuss ideas and get pumped up (or not) for the day. We judge things too. Sometimes. Always. Whatever, call it catharsis and join in people.


I keep a failure diary. Yes, you heard that right. It’s not a diary of successes or a collection of inspirational quotes. Nope, it’s a chronicle of all the times I’ve stumbled, slipped, and face-planted in the game of life. And let me tell you, it’s been one heck of a rollercoaster ride!

Now, before you start imagining me sitting in a dark room, sobbing into my journal pages, let me assure you—it’s quite the opposite. Picture this: me, with a cup of tea (or coffee, depending on the day), flipping through the pages of my failure journal and laughing so hard that my neighbors probably think I’ve lost my marbles. Why, you ask? Because failure is hilarious when you look at it from the right angle.

Let me take you on a journey through some of my most epic fails and how they’ve shaped me.

Ah, yes, the day I attempted to impress a date with my culinary skills. Long story short, the smoke alarm became our dinner music, and the fire department showed up just in time to witness my masterpiece—a charred lump that was supposed to be a gourmet meal.

Did I cry? Maybe a little. But did I add it to my failure journal? You betcha. And now, whenever I’m feeling down, I just revisit that page and remember: even Pankaj Bhadouria had to start somewhere.

Ever walked into a job interview feeling like you’ve got it in the bag, only to realize halfway through that you’ve accidentally been calling the CEO by the wrong name? Yeah, me too. It was embarrassing, sure, but you know what? It taught me humility. And it also taught me the importance of doing my research before walking into a room full of judgmental suits.

Who hasn’t accidentally liked their crush’s photo from three years ago while stalking their profile at 2 AM? Just me? Well, let’s just say it led to a very awkward conversation the next day. But you know what? It also led to a valuable lesson: always double-check your fingers before scrolling through someone’s social media feed.

So, what’s the message in all this madness, you ask? Simple: Embrace your failures like you embrace that questionable leftover pizza in the back of your fridge. They might not look appetizing at first, but they’re full of character, flavor, and valuable life lessons. Plus, they make for some pretty entertaining stories at parties.

So, here’s to the failures, the face-plants, and the flubs. Without them, life would be a whole lot less interesting. And remember, it’s not about how many times you fall—it’s about how many times you can laugh at yourself and get back up again.

Until next time, keep failing forward, my friends!
