Recent experiments

And now thanks to reading a few great books I understand that I can easily do experiments on the world around me to learn where I can push the boundaries to learn new things! Framing these things as experiments is a powerful mind hack: If an experiment fails, that’s ok! It was just an experiment. Keep that in mind the next time you find yourself pausing before trying something new or scary. Let’s take a look at what I’ve been up to!

Successful experiments

Less-than-successful experiments

Of course, with the good comes the “bad”. These were failures, but only in the sense that I’m not driving a Ferrari now. :) Each of these were a learning experience, and I’m glad I did them.

Experiments I’m still trying to figure out

Sometimes I’ll have something that isn’t a success but also isn’t a failure. Maybe it changes over time, sometimes something completely unexpected pops up. Here’s a selection of things that have me scratching my head.

The future!

More experiments to come! The only true failure in my mind is to quit. Even with failures, I still learn lots and have lots of fun. So I predict that my experiments in the future will be more ambitious, and the source of many more blog posts.
