My new blog project is a grand experiment in failure

January 8, 2013
By Love in the Time of Foreclosure

My last post generated a lot of interest. Getting all of that off my chest really made a huge difference for me. As I said in my post, 2013 would be about shunning perfection and embracing structure. Well, I’m posting to say that I have my structure.

It is a new blog experiment called

TODAY’S FAILURE: A failure a day keeps the lazy away

Or… Today’s failure is tomorrow’s success

I am calling it a grand experiment in embracing failure and I’m having a blast with it.

The basic idea is this… every day I attempt something with failure written all over it. This thing I attempt is intended to be something that will forward what I am already up to in life.

For example, I have been working on a new full-length play about a woman who becomes a magician’s assistant. I’ve been thinking that it would behoove me to learn some magic myself and also perhaps even try my hand at performing. I haven’t done this because the very thought terrifies me. And so was born a challenge for TODAY’S FAILURE:

LEARN ONE MAGIC TRICK AND PERFORM IT FOR 5 STRANGERS

I have learned the trick and today I will be performing it for 5 strangers.

I invite you to check out my new blog project and even join me. Why not?

Welcome to my grand experiment in embracing failure – TODAY’S FAILURE


P.S. As I am shunning perfection this year, the new blog is far from perfect. I have a lot more that I want to create. It’s not nearly as pretty and polished as I would like. I haven’t written an ABOUT page or the FAQ, yet. But, I’ll get there. It’s more important for me to jump into the project without waiting for it to be perfect first. So it’s imperfect. Which is actually perfect, right?
