It has to work.

Recently I’ve learned that if you put yourself in a situation where you cannot fail, you usually pull it off.

Not a bumpers in the gutter when bowling, God mode in DOOM, kind of can’t fail situation. I’m talking about a “I can’t fail because I’m going to loose something important” situation. By putting myself in a corner where I really can’t afford to fail it pushes me to not be lazy. To get things done.

I don’t think I really understood this phenomenon until I did my first GORUCK challenge. That’s a post for another time…

But one thing that experience did teach me is that by placing yourself in a situation where you have to win, because the consequence of failure is too high makes you live to your full potential.

Try it.

But also don’t die.
