I see it all perfectly; there are two possible situations- one can either do this or that. My honest opinion and my friendly advice is this: Do it or do not do it- you will regret both. To dare is to lose one’s footing momentarily. Not to dare is to lose oneself. ~Soren Kierkegaard

When it’s your turn, the cultural instinct is to launch the safe balloon, to keep your head down and create a predictable response. To play a greatest hit, not something new and dangerous. And that’s a shame. It’s your turn to write a blog post, call an old friend, start a podcast. It’s your turn to say thank you, to apologize, to ask a difficult question. It’s your turn to help a competitor, to find value where it’s been overlooked, to teach someone who is waiting to be taught.
