People fail. I consider it a truism, and an activity we should aspire to challenge often. Tasks we practice and perfect, become rote. With memorized movements, the process is automatic, and our brain is no longer fully engaged. Our culture prizes efficiency and mastery of specific skill sets, which forces experts to learn minute facts in an ever-tightening circle. The culmination creates grand masters of hollow details we dissect into oblivion.  It leaves us with a deep void we can’t fill.

Risk taking is scary, and like a child learning to walk, it guarantees only the opportunity to stumble, fall, and struggle. The fact is, we only fail if we end the journey with the first difficulty. The trial of trying something new is also exciting and exhilarating. We experience the world from a different perspective. Our brain is engaged with a problem to solve. We choose whether our ineptitude is an embarrassment, or a grand adventure filled with wonderful discoveries. I opt to embrace failure and move forward to success.

What will you try today?
