One of my least favorite sayings of late is the old, “failure is not an option”. The truth is, anyone who would utter such silliness obviously has no clue what failure or success is.
Failure is always an option, it’s just not a very attractive one.
I don’t watch much TV, though I’m hooked on The Food Network (Triple D, Triple G, BBF, Chopped…. to name a few), and I’m a sucker for sports. Other than that, not much interests me. I’d rather be cycling. Point is, on Chopped, many contestants, as they’re awaiting their fates after presenting a dish to their judges, love to say, “Failure is not an option”.
I root against every one of them, no matter how good they did, just so they can see that failure is indeed an option… and it just tapdanced all over their face.
I fail a little bit every day. If I don’t, I’m probably not trying hard enough.
