Mo Heim, one of my friends at Cat in Water, recently gave a TED talk about her project, and how being foolish led to the adventure she has had. It’s more than just being courageous; it is, as Mo says, “knowingly not knowing what you are doing, and deciding to do it anyway.” There are a lot of things in life like that.
I like to think I’ve been, in this sense, foolish and succeeded. For instance, I quit a job and moved to Cincinnati, not knowing what was in store fore me. Eighteen years later, it has proven to be the best decision I’ve ever made.
“Making the foolish choice might just be the best decision you can make.”
