Afraid of Failing?
By Marty Nemko
When you procrastinate because you fear failure, think of this. At a famous hospital, when the chief of staff greets each year's new interns, he says something like, "Each of you will kill someone--and you're entitled to. There's no way to become a doctor without practicing on patients."
So, when you're afraid of failure, remember that, as with interns, your failures are necessary prerequisites to success. Besides, your failures probably won't kill anyone.What can you do today?
What's something you should do but are afraid of failing at? Do it now or schedule it on your calendar.
