There was something about this quote that didn't

sit right with me but I was busy and moved on. -

But I couldn't forget it, so couldn't get past it. -


The problem with it is the word 'attempt.'

Attempt means 'to try' - and trying means

to 'not do' - 'not doing' is not good enough

for doing something great, or even small.

So I'll change this quote to my own way of thinking:




"If you knew you absolutely could not

fail, what great thing would you do?"
