There is something about being willing to fail

How many close friends did Walt Disney have when he died?

 

There is something about being willing to fail that is profoundly motivating, at least to me. If you want to teach a child, you must actually do the things you preach – and do them well. The lofty theory you lecture them with is only theory (again, at least to me).

Theory without habitual action is worthless.

A picture of a tool is not a tool.

Theory is only theory.

Until it is not.

Here’s a theory…

To die with five friends is to die rich?

But isn’t more, better?

(no)

Much of what we are fed to believe is based on the herd mentality. Strength in numbers. There’s a time and place for that.

To each his/her own.

Then why do i have so many friends on Facebook?

(Have been struggling with social media. Occasional posts, like this one, are part of my journey.)
