This May Work...!

|In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities, in the expert's mind there are few. ---Shunryu Suzuki

We are the prisoners of our own prisons! We are limited by our own thinking. We are incapable by our impotent thinking. We have made our pattern of looking at things a dogmatic sandbox, where every thing is bound by the so called rationality prophesied by the world inflicted by the same kinda wisdom...

We need to come out of this...so that, we don't regret our decision after 5-10 years... so that, we don't say to ourself...this is nothing, this is not what I am supposed to do. I could have done a lot better than that...

We need to think in the lines of possibilities...no longer the probabilities....
A write-up on the similar lines by Seth:

"This better work"

... is probably the opposite of, "this might work."

"This better work," is the thinking of safety, of proven, of beyond blame.

"This might work," on the other hand, is the thinking of art, innovation and insight.

If you spend all day working on stuff that better work, you back yourself into a corner, because you'll never have the space or resources to throw some 'might' stuff into the mix. On the other hand, if you spend all your time on stuff that might work, you'll never need to dream up something that better work, because your art will have paid off long ago.
