Is success in life related to how long you can go without screw-ups? No. Is it measured by the days you feel most energetic? Nope.
Success in life is directly proportional to the number of awkward conversations you’re willing to have.
Anyone can swim through the calm waters of a terrific conversations, but only the elite (or the crazy, hard to differentiate the two) look at the trashing oceans of an awkward conversation and jump in with a smile.
