not hurting anyone…

Last night one of my friends made this comment: “If it’s not perfect, don’t worry about it…no one is going to die”.

I have a great admiration for doctors and surgeons. Every day they knowingly put the lives of their patients on the line while they do their job. Me…I chose the safe (chicken?) route as a graphic designer. If I made a mistake, it might cost the company money, but no one would be physically hurt because of something I did or did not do. This is not a particularly admirable admission. It allows me to stay in the safe-zone of my thinking and not put myself “out there”…challenged…risky…adventurous…pushing the boundaries. However, no one ever did great things in the safe-zone…
