Leap, Don’t Look (But Maybe Bounce First): Embracing the Joy of Trying Stuff

We all know the feeling: paralyzed by indecision, drowning in a sea of online reviews, desperately trying to find the “one true” everything, from a trampoline to a career. But what if I told you the best path might be the most unexpected – the path of simply trying stuff?

Yes, I’m channeling the wisdom of Gary Vaynerchuk here “If you don’t know what your passion is, just try stuff” (thanks, Gary!), but there’s a reason his message resonates so deeply. Life, for most of us, isn’t about finding a single, unwavering passion. It’s a beautiful, messy exploration – a revolving door of experiences waiting to be unlocked.

The Tyranny of Choice

Let’s face it, the internet age has made us information gluttons. We can research the perfect shade of paint for a week, and still agonize over picking Tahini at the grocery store. This constant bombardment of “shoulds” can be suffocating.


Break Free from Analysis Paralysis

Here’s the liberating secret: sometimes, the best choice is no choice at all. Trust your gut, take a leap, and embrace the consequences (within reason, of course – or not).

The Beauty of the Pivot

The truth is, even the most researched decision might not be the “right” one. That’s okay! Life is about adaptability. Remember, we’re all winning just by being alive, and having our basic necessities met. So, let go of the fear of making the “wrong” choice. See it as a chance to pivot, to learn, and, most importantly, to keep moving forward. Embrace a bit of disorderly living because, most likely, it will be that way no matter what.

The Unexpected Rewards of Missteps

More often than not, those “mishaps” turn into unexpected adventures. Remember, challenges are stepping stones to growth. Who knew buying a trampoline could be an epic odyssey of hilarious assembly struggles and backyard Olympic-worthy jumps?

JOY OF TRYING STUFF leads to happiness

Embrace the Bounce

So, the next time you’re stuck in decision purgatory, take a deep breath and just go for it. You might surprise yourself with the joy you find in trying. And hey, if things don’t work out perfectly, just remember that in the grand scheme of things, it’s all just a bunch of small grapes. Now get out there and start bouncing!
