I consider myself an inspirational pessimist. That’s because I like to aim for the best even though I’m pretty certain the odds are against me and I’m prepared for things to end badly. I can also give a darn good pep talk even when I know you’ll most likely fail too.
So here’s to today. Whatever you hope to accomplish, the most important thing is to just get started. It doesn’t have to be perfect and you don’t have to know every step. Just do something and start working toward that goal.
It’s the only way and you’ll feel better for knowing you tried.
Yes – more of my oddball ways revealed!
I have sometimes described myself as a cynical optimist. I’m not sure it’s exactly the same thing, but I think they are related.
They are certainly cousins!
