To Fail or To Never Try? (That’s the question. What’s the answer?)

          Which is worse? Failing or never trying? This question used to be so simple. The answer seemed so obvious. Never trying would be the worse choice of course. Now, I look at it slightly differently. I still feel that never trying is still the worst choice someone can make for the most part. However, … More To Fail or To Never Try? (That’s the question.

When You Feel that the Good Old Days are Behind You . . . (There’s still hope)

          In a previous post I’ve mentioned one of my favorite quotes from The Office. It was the last season and Andy Bernard stated, “I wish there was a way to know you’re in the good old days before you’ve actually left them.” That quote stuck with me since the very first time I heard … More When You Feel that the Good Old Days are Behind You . . .
