You can (but make excuses not to) embrace my tag line here at Lane 8: If your goal isn’t impossible, you’re not reaching high enough.
Or you can subscribe to a more famous person’s quote. Either way, we’re saying the same thing.
“All that is necessary to break the spell of inertia and frustration is this: Act as if it were impossible to fail.” – Dorothea Brande
Dorothea Brande wrote the quintessential how-to-write book, Becoming a Writer, which was among the first to address every writer’s core problem: How to sit down and let the words flow. Her book, published in 1934, remains in print today.
