I recommend to fail.


In fact I don’t fail enough. I want to the best at everything. I want everything to go according to plan. I don’t want mistakes, I’m afraid I won’t be able to deal with them. And above all, what would others think? What if I’m just a failure in front of their eyes. I don’t want to feel this way and don’t think anybody does. I’m not comfortable with that thought. I’d rather stay in my comfort zone and do only what I know. That way I’m protected from failure.

But do I really want to do that? Do I want to progress in my creative process or just stay where I am?
Do I just want to pass the ball around or want to score a goal? Do I want to stay on the shore or start swimming?

The answer is NO. Someone wise once said – “Comfort zone is where creativity goes to die” and I truly believe that. I’d rather keep failing and learning from my mistakes while doing something I believe in than doing same old thing I’m comfortable with or not trying at all.


So yes, I recommend myself to fail and to anyone who has doubts about their creativity and motivation to try new things.

  1. Yes Yuri. Great call to arms. I’ve been too afraid to fail recently. I heard someone say that action leads to clarity. Often we only know what we should do once we try it and get it wrong.
