Fill in the Blank - If I knew I could not fail I would ___________ ?

The question is simple and self-explanatory but I would request you all to think for some time before you answer it.

" Change the world " is a satisfactory (and abstract) answer but is that something which concerns You the most at this moment in your life. So, what would You do if You knew You could not fail ?

My Answer -

If I knew I could not fail I would fall in Love.

  • Dec 12 2011: I like this. Sentence stems are a useful exercise developed by Nathaniel Branden to gain insight into one's Self and unblock our thinking. As he'd recommend, write six to 10 answers to that question, stream-of-consciousness and without editing yourself and you might be surprised at what you come up with.
    • Dec 13 2011: If I knew I could not fail, I would:
      Travel to the US and invite people from Wall Street businesses to a conference
      Talk to the primeminister in Sweden to ask him if he wants to have weekly meetings
      Buy a note book where I can write down a "To do list"
      Ask the local gym if I can work as a group leader
      Write application to Swedish Institute to get funding for starting up my private consultancy firm
      Organize conferences over 2012 to save the Baltic Sea
      Invite local schools, universities and green businesses to join the conferences
      Skype with my ex girlfriend and tell her I miss her.
      Talk to my ex classmates and say I would like to meet them again
      Create an awesome website for my firm

      DO what I am inspired to do in the moment!
