so so true...

something i realized last year was that the only scorecard people are keeping is how much stuff you are trying to pull off. People love it when you start a new project, launch a new book, ship a new product. No one ever follows up to ask how it actually went, they are too busy feeling sorry for themselves for not starting, launching, and shipping.

you nailed this one Ben.

Right on. The first kickstarter project I ever launched was a MASSIVE failure (raised less than $900 out of a 50k goal). I STILL have people coming up to me saying "You're the guy who did that big kickstarter project, right? That was awesome!" And I have to inform them that it was a huge failure on every level. Haha!

I agree with Bryan. People are impressed when you try. Just trying at all puts you head-and-shoulders above the crowd.

Ben, you are spot on here. Most people don't even think about what you are doing let alone if you fail - just get after it!
