As a kid, I failed out of fear to do flips off the diving board. I'd done one before. In fact, the fear started when my first jump went beyond the planned flip turned into a 1.5x flip/dive. However, after that I would just stand there on the board and look at the water, paralyzed. Sadly, I regret I've never did a flip again, but all I had to do was dive in.
Other than that, fear of failure doesn't normally characterize me. "Impossible" is synonymous with a challenge. I'll attempt most anything, generally fearless. However, the spirit of failure has returned in the area of my greatest aspiration, writing.
That's what this BLOG is about. To overcome this fear of failure by diving in, so I don't relive the diving board. In the process I know that I will fail. Then I will fail again. Then I will fail better. So long as I dive in again and again, I know that eventually I will be failing the best.
I invite you assist me in my journey with constructive feedback. I welcome debate and the devil's advocate (See On Liberty post). I want to know if you disagree, but do so intelligibly supporting you position. I will delete all ad hominem and similarly fallacious comments.
