You can’t fail at experiments

Learning is the goal of experiments. The only failed experiment is the one that doesn’t teach you anything.

So if you’re so afraid of failing that you don’t want to try, run an experiment. There’s nothing to fear when the goal is to learn.

If being wrong fills you with shame, run an experiment. There’s no shame where there’s no failure.

Stop changing, start experimenting.
