Eliminate Useless Assumptions

Most of our assumptions have outlived their uselessness. - Marshall McLuhan

Perhaps the greatest one for me to loose was I can't.  For years this held me back.  Assumed I could not play guitar as good as my heroes on the instrument, so why make the effort.  Easier to do nothing.  What a loss.  Years of finding peace and comfort through the instrument.  Years of holding back.  Not any more.  Let go of the mask of I can't.

So much of excellence is of course, the art of elimination. - Robyn Scott

What assumption of yours has outlived their usefulness and needs eliminating?

  1. I think "I can't" is the biggest one that I've said goodbye to. It tries to sneak up behind me sometimes, but I turn around and kick it in the shins. :-)
