And why the hell not, eh? From Seth Godin:
It’s not stupid to have a stated goal of starting several ventures that will fail, or asking three stupid questions a week, or posting a blog post that the world disagrees with. If you don’t have goals like this, how exactly are you going to luck into being remarkable?
It reminds me of an old favourite that adorns one of my living room walls:
He is not wise, who has not tried the ugly and the bad; for then there is nothing that would enable him to assert that he is virtuous.
I rather suspect they’re talking at crossed purposes (not to mention across more than two millennia), but what can I say – I like the synthesis. 🙂
