One of the things my dad helped me develop was the ability to just try anything. And just see what happens. It really doesn't matter if you fail horribly (and trust me I have been God awful at so many things- skiing, djing, volleyball (though that might have been due to me not being able to see the ball properly as I'm shortsighted haha) the list goes on! But you'll learn something from everything, particular when it goes tits up- you'll learn more than if it went perfectly first time! ;)
You can only connect the dots in hindsight. I loved it in Steve Jobs' commencement speech (this can be found in my Resources YouTube Speeches page). He spoke about how it was costing his parents too much for him to attend Reed College. For those of you who don't know USA university can cost a fortune. We are pretty fortunate in the UK for our education and health service!
Anyhoo, he stumbled upon a course looking at fonts and typography.. Fascinated by it but obviously doing it purely out of interest. Many years later, he incorporated this into his Mac computers. And according to him, as Windows copied the Mac, it is conceivable that we would not have fonts on any of our electronic devices had it not been from Steve Jobs attending that one course.
So try something new- attend a new group, read a different book, do a sport, connect with someone you wouldn't normally associate with. At worst, it goes poo and you can just write it off as a learning experience. At best, it could change the world!
Happy adventuring! Lots of love, Nick Xxx
