Sigmund Freud once said that there are no accidents and we’re pretty sure he was on to something there because there’s no doubt that many of the world’s greatest innovations came to us by way of somebody screwing up big time. Yes, every now and then the outcome of a totally craptastic situation can lead to unexpected gains, so the next time you spill coffee all over that Bergdof Goodman sweater, don’t fret, for you may have just inadvertently stumbled upon the cure for death. Way to go you!!!
