Hey friends - Happy Valentine's Day! 

Working on a new project, learning a new skill, trying a new experience, and generally getting out of our comfort zones can be both exciting and frightening.

Many of us, however, are unfortunately very reluctant to try anything new. This is mainly because of a fear of failure, driven by many factors, including a fixed mindset or a fear of being judged.

So, how can you overcome this fear? It turns out by failing like a scientist.

To fail like a scientist is to embrace the experimental nature of life. Everything is an experiment, every failure a learning opportunity. It’s about having a growth mindset— where uncertainty is a positive sign that you are learning and growing.

For example, it could be very easy for me to just go to work, make some money, and forever sit within my comfortable bubble that I'm familiar with. But by trying out new things - travelling (one day haha), starting a new hobby, or making videos on YouTube - I am opening my world up to endless new possibilities. This is an incredibly exciting journey open to all of us!

So this week I urge you to challenge your assumptions, break your normal patterns of thought, and disrupt your routine. Just step away from your studies and do something a bit different. You'll be amazed how much progress you can make and (surprisingly) how fun it can be to fail!

Enjoy your week!
