The F Word

I’ve been thinking alot about the question posed by Robert Schuller:

What would you attempt to do if you knew you would not fail?

There are so many things really.

I would write for a living. I would open my own business. I would walk into companies I want to work for and get a job with them.

It strikes me that the things I would try are all career based. I never really thought about failing until I had been in the job search for a few months. I still don’t think about failing in personal issues, just professional.

I’m going to give the question some more thought. Failure should never be an option but the reality is that it is. I may be middle aged, but in me still lives the girl who got straight A’s in school. I never saw an “F” on an exam. I’m not ready to see one now.
