QOTD: Important of F**k-Up Slack

Quote from Jeff Bezos to Chris Anderson from the early days of the latter’s TED conference stewardship:

TED is a great conference. You’re going to have to f**k-up really badly to screw it up.

Wise words. It’s always important to know how much "f**k-up" slack you have in any system in which you have a role.
