Having Some Balls In Life -- Or, Note To Self

I have generally been known to be a careful and conscientious person.  I like to have my ducks in a row.  I don't really take risks -- big ones, anyway.

But, on the other hand, it's important to live your life.  Ya know?

Do you have a passion?  Do you have a dream?  Or even a simple goal?

Sometimes, you've just got to go for it.

Of course, go for it sensibly.  You must think about whether or not it is a reasonable passion, dream, or goal.  You must consider whether or not it is actually achievable.  It is also a good idea to gather some advice from a few people you consider to be knowledgeable and trustworthy.  In short, you must think your idea through and make sure you have (or can morally and legally obtain) whatever may be necessary to carry it out.

And you must be willing to work hard, to be dedicated, to persevere.  You have to have not just a little bit of determination and self-discipline.

And you need to have a plan -- a plan which you are actually willing to carry out, and not just write down on a napkin and shove in a drawer somewhere.

But, if you are sensible and organized, and if your plan is at least relatively reasonable, why not give it a try?  Because you only go once around.

So, go ahead -- grow a set.  And go for it.
