    Starbucks is not an option! It’s a lifestyle. Apple isn’t an option, it’s a lifestyle.

    In your case, Pig, consider a trip to the meat packing plant; at least then you can be a success at ham and bacon.

    The Will To Fail – Katie Lee

    I`m outwardly calm, apparently normal,

    quick to smile and slow to peak,

    but I have a little quirk

    a pattern so to speak.

    I`ve rarely have ever hold a job,

    I never finish my work,

    I`m an affable kind of a slob,

    a highly disorganized classic sort of a jerk.

    I`ve got the will to fail,

    the will to fail,

    I have talents that I never use,

    I try to win, but I love to lose,

    because I`ve got the will to fail. …

    Don’t call it failure; term it as optional success!

    If this committed lifestyle works, then that would be a success which means that he’s not a failure which means he’s failed at being a failure and since failure is what he wanted he has succeeded which means he’s not a failure …

    It always strikes me as a tad unusual how Pig manages to get ink all over himself while writing with a ball point pen…

    It’s quite true. Failure is not an “option.” It’s a “result.” Therefore, one will never “fail” if one never “attempts.” Of course, if one never attempts, one will never succeed either. So it could be just as accurately stated that “Success is not an option.

    Failing forward is actually a great strategy, and it takes you places you would have never imagined.

    Same boat. What happened to the oars? On top of that, I didn’t know the boat had a fountain onboard. Uh Oh.

    Maxim 70: failure is not an option. It’s mandatory. The option is whether or not you let failure be the last thing you do.
