The Two Ways to Fail
Failure comes in two broad categories: failure by doing and failure by not doing.
If you attempt and fail, you’ll have a stronger understanding of what to do next time, what did and didn’t work, and be a more awesome person for it. This what what we call “failing forward” applied to real life.
If you don’t even try, you’re letting life pass you buy with no growth or becoming more awesome.
So, unless the price for failure is something like death or dismemberment or entering politics, fucking do it already. Start failing forward, stop sitting on your ass.
