Learn to fail better

Inspired by Beckett, the two performers learned how to excellently fail to take gravity into consideration and hit the ground. I wonder if I could fail as well as they did?
(The text that is inspiring all this is Beckett's Worstward Ho... a short excerpt of this short work:
On. Say on. Be said on. Somehow on. Till nohow on. Said nohow on.
Say for be said. Missaid. From now say for missaid.
Say a body. Where none. No mind. Where none. That at least. A place. Where none. For the body. To be
in. Move in. Out of. Back into. No. No out. No back. Only in. Stay in. On in. Still.
All of old. Nothing else ever. Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
First try fail better one.
Then try fail better two.
