Dunk a basketball. Build a successful business. Get a standing ovation. I’ve always dreamt about these things, but have never accomplished any of them.
Saying that I can’t do these things is an oversimplification, though. The fact is that I’ve never dedicated meaningful time and energy to these things. So of course I can’t.
When’s the last time you realllllly failed? The last time you dumped every ounce of yourself into something and still came up short?
I posit that people - especially myself - would benefit from epicly failing more often. From now on I want failure to always be on the table. That way my successes mean something.
This site exists because I’m don’t want to fail small anymore. I don’t want to fail because of boredom or apathy. I want to push myself to the extreme and fail because I truly couldn’t do it. I want to realize my smallness in this world and my awesomeness at the same time.
And guess what? Sometimes I won’t fail.
