Goethe on Risk

What I learned from Goethe about Risk

Welcome to Make Daily! This email contains an idea, reflection, and a simple action you can take on your creative project today.

Idea 💡

"Daring ideas are like chessmen moved forward; they may be beaten, but they may start a winning game." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Reflection 🤔

While it's true that risks may lead to failure, not taking risks will lead to a worse kind of defeat. Permanently wondering “what if?”

I would rather try, learn, and fail at something, then wonder what could have been.

Action ✅

Can you live peacefully with the risks you’re avoiding? If not, make a move.
