    But that is *exactly* what a harbor is for. Sometimes also useful.

    This is a common quote here, and it’s one that I like very much. There’s the repost shade Then there’s the technical shade. Moving beyond that: here’s why I like it. Risk is one of the only ways to gain. I’m not some Wall Street type; I’m very boring and careful with every decision. As comfortable as it is to stay where you are, and be safe: it’s shown, time and again, that change is always good. It’s a message about complacency. [Fear] (Above: my own experience) If you were a boat, could you really do much by not going anywhere? It’s cool to hunker down during the hard times, but otherwise, just go. Think about where you wanna go, what you wanna do, and do that. Take more chances. As much as I’ve failed this idea, I still love it.

    I have an inside joke version of this quote that goes " A mug is safe in a cupboard, but that's not what mugs are made for"

    Feels like my ship is most unsafe when in the harbour at the moment 😅
