I had a great time behind the camera all day Monday, but a slew of articles having been landing in my inbox covering this topic and I find it non-coincidental. Seth Godin on Fearlessness is Not The Absence of Fear Kierkegaard on Anxiety and Creativity There was a great article in this past week’s New Yorker about a Zen Buddhist monk whom helps with the prevention of suicides in Japan (a place with the highest suicide rate in the world) This really resonated with me.

Nothing would happen if we let this thought override us. ‘If’ has to do with our expectations and how there is never a guarantee of outcome. What if you build something and and no one shows up? All these stairs still function the same, though they are constructed impractically. What if we build this differently… ‘What if’ we discredited people such as this. Politicians do this with their constituents; obviously teachers are doing this. We are all guilty of assuming in this way, though maybe not in this exact context. ‘What if’ is like could-woulda-shoulda. It will always hold us back.
