What would you do, if you knew you couldn't fail?


I passed a sign the other day that posed an interesting question, "What would you do, if you knew you couldn't fail?" It actually made me take a second to think about it. I wonder why this question provoked such thought when a question like, "What are you going to do with your life?" doesn't give people much of a pause except for a brief shrug and an "I dunno".

Maybe its because when you ask someone "What are you going to do with your life?" the first couple of times they heard it they replied, "an artist", "a professional baseball player", until people started to laugh at them, and told them simply that it was impossible or impractical. So, then they changed their answer to something that was standard and something that could not possibly be shot down. Buy when the question is posed, "What would you do, if you knew you couldn't fail?" you are finally allowed to answer by following your heart. But then it becomes too hard to answer because "I dunno" has finally gotten the best of you.

So, now I ask you: what would you do, if you knew you couldn't fail?
