Love this essay. This is why I’d rather insist on taking chances, on always working to instigate the new unknown let’s just try it and see what happens, than fall back on what I already suspect will succeed because there is “no room to fail,” as they say.

Restless dissatisfaction with self and its accompanying anguish make great things happen. So if I am thinking I can handle a theatrical challenge I lose interest. I am driven to do things I do not know how to do and I strive to create situations precisely where I do not know what’s happening or going to happen.
