"If something is important enough, you should try." – Elon Musk
Yes, we might fail.
Yes, we might embarrass our self.
Yes, we may even look back and laugh at what we chose to do.
But if it’s truly important enough, let’s go.
It’s easy for us to judge a situation with no other inputs aside from history, and assumptions. Great data points to have on our side, but they are exactly that – assumptions of the future.
What it is… the new job, asking out the girl on the first date, changing lifestyles… if it’s truly that important to us, it at least deserves a try. Let’s not be the ones on our deathbeds repeating those horrific words – "I should have tried".
