Quote-A-Day: Day 113

Never be afraid to try something new. Whether you succeed or fail, what's most important is you've learned.

Trying new things must be a staple in our lives.  If we don't explore things that are different from what we do on a daily basis, we become stagnant.

And in the world of leading and learning, stagnancy is one of the worst things that can happen.

Sometimes we fear the new, worried that we're entering an area where we don't know enough to be successful or to feel comfortable.  But that's part of the adventure, isn't it?

In the grand scheme of things, even if we fail, and fail miserably, we have still learned something.

And that's what is most important, right?

Whether we succeed or fail in an action we take, as long as we have learned something, we are in a better position than before we had taken that action.

So, our promise to ourselves needs to be that we won't run from the new, but instead we'll embrace any opportunity to learn.
