A willingness to look stupid.

My wall calendar for March said: (you can buy one from Austin Kleon here)

“You will need:

              Curiosity

              Kindness

              Stamina

              A willingness to look stupid”

I use these four things every day. Curiosity to ask why. Kindness to be me. Stamina for my work day, my workout and for my family. A willingness to look stupid during each part of my life. To take a chance and to fail. To fail and get back up. To fail and to teach others about how that went and why I would do it differently next time. In fact on many days, a willingness to look stupid is my most valuable trait.
