I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're doing something!

The idea of not trying out new things, new ideas.....seems odd to me Paul.What fun would it be in life if we didn't explore each and every day.  And what may appear as a mistake....really isn't.  It's all perfectly leading to something else.  Happy New Year!
