Fifth Try

It’s not about getting it right the first time.

It’s not even about getting close.

If things are going well and your craft is easy, that’s good.

But it’s not a challenge.

And we’re probably not learning much.

It’s not until the fourth or fifth or even sixth try that we start to figure things out.

You won’t be in the game long if you expect to win on your first go.

Getting beat isn’t the hard part.

Going for your fifth try after a beating is though.
