I admit to being slightly overambitious. Okay, I’m a overachiever with a long history of failure.
HA! Take that!
I used to call it my Splat, Slither Syndrome.
What is this, you ask? Well, let me tell you.
- This is the need to leap buildings in a single bound (i.e. set impossible goals).
- During the attempt to bound over the obstacle, you slam into the side of the building — SPLAT!
- While senseless from the impact, you SLITHER down the facade of the building into a graceless heap at the bottom of the structure.
Doesn’t it sound painful?
Then why do I do it over and over again?
Because I’m an OPTIMIST! Damn it! Or really nuts. I’m going for the Optimist label.
I’ll get over that stupid building, even if I have to building building in front of it. Maybe I’ll go around it, sometimes I’ll go under it. But I’ll get to the side I want. With the results I want.
As the adage goes, Go Big or Go Home!
