No time for losers 'cause we are the champions... From lacing up our own shoes to graduating from university, and from tidying our room to staging our first show, we reap the rewards. But why is it that our triumphs are always celebrated, while our less successful endeavours are ignored?

You can't avoid noticing it: we create our own ideal worlds in social media, with only our tastiest dishes, most romantic moments and greatest sporting achievements on show. There is no room for mistakes. When we make them, as we invariably do, we hide them away from sight. Yet we learn more from what goes wrong than from what goes right, so why don't we talk about our failures?

On Thursday 20 February Night Shift moves the focus from success to failure, making the case for getting it wrong and celebrating the learning opportunities that are our mistakes.
