It’s time for me to be a loser in two different ways:
First, I want to lose some weight. I am used to the lifestyle of running around lab all day. Since finishing up my PhD, I am now sitting way more than I have been used to for the last few years. I get some small exercises in during the day, but I think it is time to get back to tracking my eating and fitness.
Second, I’m ready to strike out on some ideas, if necessary. I’ve recently adopted the phrase “There are only two outcomes: success and learning” to replace the idea of “failure”. Failure is not as scary as it used to be for me. I am willing to lose out if it means I truly learn from it.
Of course… I’ll strive for success.
