One of the many areas I’m trying to develop right now is my willingness to fail.
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve become more and more reticent to try anything that I might fail at. My general thought for years has been that if I can’t grade myself with at least a B-, it’s not worth doing.
But let’s be entirely honest here. “Not worth doing” really translates to “my ego can’t handle it”. So in order to get over that, I need to get over the shock of possibly REALLY SUCKING at something so I can really reach beyond my current limitations.
“Not worth doing” really translates to “my ego can’t handle it”.
I’d also like to try an improv class. I think being able to better think on my feet would be really valuable, because right now I am pretty terrible at it.
Got a suggestion? I’d love to hear it…
