Strive to fail often! (on the Internet)

  • More failure implies less fear
    After I failed in my first Medium post, I realized that my fear of failure for the coming posts had decreased. As the fear had decreased, I was able to write each post that followed without unnecessary drama! Writing those posts, taught me a lot about the art of writing. I write better posts now (at least, I think so), thanks to every post that failed.
  • Extrapolation
    I was able to carry the reduced fear to other aspects of my life. Because I had failed in front of an audience of millions of people, the fear of failing in front of a small crowd while delivering a speech seemed trivial, the fear of presenting my work to my peers seemed manageable!
