What is your belief about making a mistake? Last week’s newsletter went out twice (no idea why). In the past, my thought would have been that is a disaster. I have a small following so hopefully, it didn’t irritate too many people.
Having learned that mistakes happen and we can learn from them, I reached out to a friend that confirmed the newsletter went out twice and her response was “And that is OK”. Every so often you need confirmation from others that It is OK.
So before you jump to conclusions that the world is falling apart (mostly just your world that feels that way), rather take the approach of asking. I think we are so conditioned for right or wrong that we place unnecessary pressure on ourselves.
The future belongs to the curious. The ones who are not afraid to try it, explore it, poke at it, question it and turn it inside out.
Ian Leslie wrote a great book called Curious: The Desire to Know and Why Your Future Depends On It. He begins by telling you about potentially the biggest secret that most people fail to grasp. Get your copy at Amazon or a book shop of your choice.
I was suddenly seeing that the world is incredibly interesting. If you’re paying attention, everything in the world – from the nature of gravity, to a pigeon’s head, to a blade of grass – is extraordinary. The close you look at anything, the more interesting it gets. But nobody tells you this.
