What is “too far”?

“Unless you go too far, you don’t know how far you can go.” William Friedkin

Yet that means I might overstep my bounds, make a fool of myself, fall off the virtual cliff. I might make a mistake. Then what?

Then, I clean up any mess, take stock of what worked and what didn’t, and evaluate the last step that took me over the edge. Was it:

  • A mistake?
  • Too much too soon?
  • Right step, wrong place?
  • Critical for my learning?

Then what? You got it! Move on. Take the next step.

Where have you gone too far?
Where have you not gone far enough?
What is too far?

What is YOUR wisdom?
