Have you ever seen a toddler try walking for the first time?
The first time can get pretty ugly:
- Riding a bike
- Singing a solo
- Folding your clothes
- Asking someone out for a date
- Driving a car
- Hitting a golf ball
- Cooking dinner
- Interviewing for a job
- Speaking in public
- Trying out for a team
- Recording a YouTube video
This list will grow longer with time, hopefully. As life goes on, your first try will not be your best ever. But your first will be your best at that point, based on your experience.
The toddler doesn’t give up on walking just because they fall down a few times.
You must go through ugly to get to pretty (good).
