I had a big knot in my head.

Either I could try. Try harder and eventually fail. Make changes and fail again. Adapt, overcome and still fail.

And at some day, I will reach the point where my nose is that bloody, that I won't try anymore.

Or I won't try at all. Go away even if I am maybe just 10 inches before the finish line. Maybe then I will be in the same situation again.

Today I will choose the first option.

I used the words in a blog post about self management:

Plan - Act - Reflect - Adapt

Back to the future...
