It’s Monday. Go for It!

Out-Smart

Thought for the Week

The two greatest causes of disappointment in life are:

1) Taking risks and

2) Not taking risks

“Sometimes it’s riskier not to take a risk. Sometimes all you’re guaranteeing is that things will stay the same.”
~Danny Wallace

“If you’re offered a seat on a rocket ship, don’t ask what seat! Just get on.”
~Sheryl Sandberg

“If you dare nothing,
then when the day is over,
nothing is all you will have gained.”
~Neil Gaiman

“All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make, the better.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Safety is indeed stability, but it is not progression.”
~Criss Jami

“Criticism is part of learning and growth. If you are not getting criticised, it means you are not taking enough risk to learn something new and to grow.”
~Sanjeev Himachali

“Shallow waters don’t lead to new continents.”
~Constance Friday

    “Security is mostly a superstition. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.”  ~Helen Keller

    I never thought of criticism this way. Will definitely keep this in mind.

    Hi Mitch,

    Yes. I got hit pretty hard by life and being a risk-taker is not on my wheel house right now. But for me trying to do those creative things again even when I don’t feel like is my area od risk.

    I hope you are well and doing good. In Christ, Gary
