Sink or swim?
Throwing yourself into the middle of the Pacific Ocean is NOT the best way to learn how to swim. You will drown.
But it probably is the best way to learn most other things. Because drowning isn’t the consequence of failure for most other things, even if it feels like it at the time.
Remember that next time you feeling like you’re drowning… unless of course you actually are in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. In that case, it’s probably best to forget this post.
