Most of the time we're just not in the mood.
I'm not in the mood most of the time.
We're not in the mood to go to work.
To do the work.
To go out on a limb.
To send out that CV.
To ask her out on a date.
To go to class.
To go to that interview.
To send out our portfolio.
To have “the talk.”
And on and on and on.
I wasn't even in the mood for writing this.
We're never in the mood for all of these things.
Because we might fail.
Because we might make mistakes.
Because we might get rejected.
And another truth is that even though we might lose, we might also win.
A lot bigger than what we'll ever be able to lose.
We might get that job.
We might get that date.
We might get that client.
We might fix a shitty situation.
And what do you have to lose?
And what can you win?
