2021-01-30: Fall Down Six, Stand Up Seven

I forgot to post last night.


I was a precocious kid. Solving problems came easily to me until it didn't. And when it didn't, I crumpled. I didn't know how to try again. It's an underrated skill. I wish I'd been better at it, back then.

Failure is not properly rated in America. We look at it as a bad thing and miss its potential. I wonder if we look at failure on the appropriate timeline. I don't think we do. The Red Sox lost the first three games to the Yankees in the ALCS ... and then won the next four, and the World Series.
