Plan to fail to succeed in 2015

chessToday you are going to start or try something new. It can be as simple as a new way to drive to work. A different order at Starbuck’s. Order a Rosetta Stone and learn a new language (Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg learned Mandarin Chinese last year). Start a company. Change jobs. Don’t worry about failure, just do it. Successful people fail all the time. Do something.¬†Today. Tell me what it is below …. studies show if you write it, you feel more committed to it!¬†Mine?

Everything is theoretically impossible, until it is done. –Robert Heinlein
