"I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody." - Bill Cosby
Now, this is a quote that caught my attention. As one who is perpetually trying to "please" everyone, contrary to popular belief, it's no wonder I'm not doing anything but frantically keeping up. I think that there is a lesson to be learned here, and I plan on taking it to heart....
Whether you're a writer, scientist, artist, business person, or architect - trying to please everyone not only exhausts you - but compromises your artistic integrrity.
I just learned that. Profound, huh?
That in mind, I am planning on apologizing less and doing more. Life is too short to please everyone. If that's all you try to do, you're headed nowhere fast. Choose the people who are most important to you (and hopefully that includes yourself and your spouse), and please them (if you have to please anyone!). Those are the only ones who really matter...
