The quote above is one of my favorites. It is a beautiful question, and one that (if you let it), will make you think.
It's never too late.
So, what would you do?
I like this philosophical question.
It does make a person think. So much so, that I haven't come up with an answer yet, but still working on it.
Skydive without any mishaps, including landing. Since I already have a lower back problem, don't think this will happen in my lifetime now...
Haha Norman!!! I needed that laugh... all the way up from my toes.
I can't think of anything because the possibility of failing isn't something I've ever factored into my choice to try to do something. (I'm not a thrill-seeking sort, so none of those thrill-seeking things that could result in disaster are even in the mix for me to chose from.)
...spend some quality time with every member of the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders - lol lol lol lol - just kidding folks - actually and most sincerely because I want all of my 7 kids to see it - and their kids too - and that is bring world peace and have every country in the world represented in that Coke commercial where they all hold hands and sing "I would like to teach the world to sing" - sounds a bit corny but let's face it - world peace is a really neat idea - and bring back Jesus too - to start the sing-a-long- I am serious here and a bit idealistic but it's a beautiful pure thoughts for genrations to come and living without nuclear threat ....... maybe John Lennon was right when he sang Imagine - lake erie time ontario canada 11:32pm great question by the way
Thank you much, my Friend To The North I believe it's one of those questions that'll give ya a run for your money if you really, really, think about it. I'm right there with you on world peace. Nothing corny about it... The Dallas thing definitely got me giggling. Thank you for your input.
It will sound like a dope-smoking hippy answer, but, since I "can't fail," I would bring equality and justice to the world.
Hi Shadesbreath!! Who cares what it sounds like?!? I'm all about equality AND justice... Where would you start? I know I'd shatter the 'glass ceiling' right off the bat. Fairly run-of-the-mill chick answer, of course, but I would. Comment appreciated!
quit my job and write full time...it'd be a success, right?
How many e-books do you have out? If you don't have any, then you are missing the sea change that writers of this moment in history have an opportunity to launch their ships from.
If you need help, or have questions, and this is really, truly a dream that you actually have the desire, motivation, discipline and educational qualifications for, feel free to hit me up via email. But most of everything you need to know is available from the Amazon Kindle KDP program (Just Google Amazon KDP and start reading). It's simple, fast, easy, and, if your work is polished and interesting, profitable. Stop dreaming and GO. The window won't stay open forever. Suck it up, do the f-ing learning curve, and get in while the window is open. If you don't, you deserve every last lament you have about your "I could have been a writer" forty years from now.

What would you attempt to do if you knew that you could not fail?The fear of failure causes us to not try new things or attempt things that we really want to do, like persue a dream you may have. Why do we fear failure so much? What would life be like if failure was not only not an...
