Most of the time, we approach our tasks with the mantra of, “this better work.”
Far better to say, “this might work.”
If you’re designing a bridge or a pacemaker, I’m begging you to embrace established norms and build something that’s going to work, every single time.
For the rest of us, though, the task is to leap forward, to improve, to explore the next frontier.
“This might work” is the slogan for a scientist, an artist and a linchpin.
