Your First Try Won’t Be Great

The important thing is to try.

Your trying leads to something. That something is usually bad, but with practice turns into something good and with more practice becomes great.

Don’t expect the first draft to be perfect. It never is.

To get better at anything. Do more of that thing.

Try > Bad > Good > Great

We’ve All Got Something

Something that can be seen or is unseen.
We’ve all got something going on that makes us unique.
A physical feature is usually seen by others.
A mental feature or capability can’t be seen, but used in stealth until they figure it out.
Make use of your something.

Change Changes You

People do what they know.

People know what they know.

Why is change so hard?
Because when you start out with something new, you don’t know.

Are You Not Handicapped and Pushing Those Buttons?

I’m peeved about people who use the button to automatically open the door for handicapped people. People who are obviously NOT handicapped.
One day that button is going to break and a handicapped person will be stuck outside the building waiting for someone to open the door for them.
If you can open the door yourself, do it!

More Humble or More Realistic?

It seems that the older I get the more I realize what I don’t know.
I’m not sure if I’m getting more humble as I get older or more realistic.
