"This might not work." - Seth Godin

Part mindset. Part mantra. Part rallying cry. Part tiny nugget of Godin wisdom. The phrase "this might not work." prompts us to reconsider much of what we've been taught.

We can embrace the idea of working on projects that might not work, or run from them. We can water down our art because "it might not work" or we can push harder and go further because "it might not work."

Fearing the risk of failure, the risk that the project might not work out, steers us into safer projects - projects that have a pretty high chance of working.

Embracing the idea of doing projects that really and truly might not work makes ask ourselves, what projects are worth risking failure for?

Seth Godin has a habit of turning conventional industrialized wisdom on it's head.

"'This might not work' is either a curse, something that you labor under, or it's a blessing, a chance to fly and do work you never thought possible." -Seth Godin

So, what projects are you willing to take a chance on?
