As you all know without fail I offer Miloh a little nugget of wisdom that I have learned.
Todays wisdom for Miloh: Take Risks
That could be the most important thing I learned in college and I actually learned it in a class. Or I guess I should say a professor told the class to take risks.
It was in a great Religion and Physics class I took. Not to be confused with the Physics and Religion class I took the next quarter. This one was in the religion department, the other in the math department. Both fantastic but this was one of my standout classes.
The teacher was amazing.
The first day of class we watched Pinocchio because the story was about personal transformation. Which makes me remember that it was a Religion and Personal Transformation class not to be confused with Religion and Physics which should not be confused with Physics and Religion.
Anyway, the big takeaway from the class was to take risks.
I have my whole life pretty much. I kind of don't listen to folks when they say things can't be done... And I find a way to do those things. I've made career and life decisions that probably weren't the safest decisions but they have all paid off well.
Without risk life is boring. And the worst that can happen is you fail. But if yo never take a risk you fail anyway.
Plus I think failure is the best way to learn.
So do what you want. Follow your dream. Take risks and never look back.
And I leave you with another video by Frank Turner (the dude I mentioned in my last post) because again I find myself loving his words in this song Eulogy. First minute and 7 seconds but you can feel free to watch the next song too.
