    Alright... So I am sitting on the shitter today... I am skimming through the latest copy of Playboy reading through the articles (Yes... I really do read the articles). I look at the pictures too, but ahhh ok back to the topic here.

    Ok...

    So I am not one to usually quote people but I read this and thought "Damn this is pretty much how you should live your life"...

    This is a quote from the founder of GoDaddy.com. Sounds pretty much inline with how I think. Some words to go by here if you ask me!

    Basically... Don't just take what life gives you for face value. Run with an idea or a concept and don't be afraid of failure. When you have a good idea or concept run with it and give it everything you have. Don't let the thought of failure get in your mind or you won't think clearly.

    That's what it means. :)

    I love the part about not making decisions out of fear. I can remember a lot of times when things go unexpectedly wrong and then I start making decisions out of panic and fear and then end up regretting those decisions later. Usually decisions made out of fear, end up costing more time and more money than if you just stay calm and hang in there.

    In your mind.
    Another way to put is: don't have a plan b, you have plan a and then plan a.

    Still trying to get my mind that way, though.

    That's straight Parson knowledge. He knows a thing or two about a thing or two.
