Today’s Thinking Out Loud reflection is on Cervantes work, Don Quixote.
“I do not insist,” answered Don Quixote, “that this is a full adventure, but it is the beginning of one, for this is the way adventures begin.” ― Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Don Quixote
Note: “You’re crazy! Why would you do that? Why don’t you . . .!” When we’re about to set out on an adventure, critics will freely challenge our sanity. I recall when I resigned from a job to take another a 1000 miles away a colleague came to me and said, “Ray, you’re not making a good move. You’re giving up security.” I ignored him and had an adventure. It made all the difference. Never fear the adventure, fear more being afraid to try.
