The Seventh Lesson: The Things Most Worth Doing are Those Which People Say Can’t Be Done

Throughout my life, I’ve encountered many things that I didn’t think I could do.

Until I did them.

Blogging for the past 355 days in row is just one example.

Then there were those things that others told me could not be done.

At least they could not be done by me, they said.

So I was encouraged not to do things.

You know what I do when I am urged not to do something?

I do it.

And I make sure to do it well.

Really, really well.

Like entering a career in financial services after being told I’d never succeed.

Or like becoming a writer after being told that I was really not that good.

Or like representing myself in litigation after being told I was too ignorant to do so.

And even like eating the lemon garnish on a piece of fancy sushi after being told that it was for decorative purposes only.

This brings me to the seventh – and perhaps most valuable – lesson this blogging experience has taught me:

The things most worth doing are those that people – myself included – say can’t be done.

356 blog posts down – only 9 more to go…

We’re in single digits, baby!
