Idea 💡

"It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default." J. K. Rowling

Reflection 🤔

A hidden truth of life is how great a risk it is to be overly cautious.

If you never attempt difficult things, you have given up living a life that fulfills your potential.

If you're not willing to fail on your journey, you have failed yourself already.

Action ✅

Where are you being overly cautious in your creative work? Take a step outside of your comfort zone today.
