It might work.
It might not work.
But is it worth trying?
We live in incredible times. I try to remember that everyday.
What will matter in 5 years? 10 years? 50?
I think the hardest part of this new economy is getting over our fear.
Fear of trying the unknown.
Fear of uncertainty.
Fear of failure.
The model for this economy isn’t certainty, knowing facts, following the rules and hoping to get picked by the gatekeeper.
The skill that we have to develop is being comfortable with trying new things,
and even celebrating smart failures.
Smart failures are the kind where we learn whether something worked or not -
where we tested something in a way that we’re still allowed to play the game.
Maybe it worked and maybe it didn’t. But we learned.
That’s what I’m hoping to do. That’s why I publish.
