Podcast Episode 49: Ride On

    Feb 8, 2021

    Years ago in Santa Fe, I saw a picture of a worn out, broke down, tore up cowboy who had obviously been kicked off his horse. Underneath him was this sign:

    Ain’t been throwed? Prob’ly never rode.

    There’s comfort in them there words.

    Sometimes the satisfaction of giving it a whirl is worth getting a little heave-ho when things go wrong. To be clear here, I’m not talking tragically wrong, just scary-no-fun wrong. Or humiliating-wrong. Or boy-am-I-bad-at-this wrong.

    If there’s something you’ve been wanting to try, but you haven’t because you’ve been afraid of failing, this episode just might give you the encouragement you need to hop onto that horse and git along, because the satisfaction–and joy–of “just trying” is not altogether mythical.
