Success is as random as failure. Nobody knows what will work or not.
Only retrospect may reveal a raging success. But we waste so much of our creative energy trying to be successful.
When you let go of the need to win, you may attempt new things. You may build your own distinct perspective, a different worldview. Take a new route.
The quest of the ‘sure thing’ blinds us up to the alternatives.
Let go of the drive to win and treat everything as an experiment to learn and improve.
We would never know how high or far we would have gone if we always knew where we would land.
