3 Principles of Success (Harford)

  1. Seek out and try new things.

  2. When trying something new, do it on a scale where failure is survivable.

  3. Seek out feedback (to determine your level of success) and learn from your mistakes as you go along.

comment Analysis and Translation of the song “Mientras duermen los niños” by Jose Luis Perales
@JoulSauron Because we are still in Beta, I see no reason to hold on new creative ideas such as arts in general. The trick is to make it more appropriate on this site -- which I am trying to do with the brainteasers. It requires good understanding of Spanish and some analytical skills to really answer this question. Taking a word out of a song misses so much of the context...

+1 thank you! I moved brainteasers to the question, there are still points that this song gets me thinking. I am not yet sure of the meaning and the goal of this song, just beautiful song perhaps, dunno.

@Flimzy I think art such as music is one of the best way to understand language usage in all little details -- sad if not appropriate here because it reflects a lot things about culture and related things. Even though you don't know the language yet, it is very good way to learn it and investigate little things -- you can learn a lot by reading it and analysing it. I really think that musical analysis and particularly lyrics analysis of non-natives should be allowed because even a single comma can change meaning and it is very hard to understand certain songs without the cultural context.
