“By sucking at surfing, I was able to get over my fear of public humiliation, right? Because when you surf, you are surfing where everyone can see you wipeout and miss waves. I got really used to being okay with that. Then I realized I could apply that to my writing. I started sharing my writing more as I got accustomed to that and thinking, “Well, the worst thing that happens is somebody sees my writing and they don’t like it,” right? I mean, I’ll be okay with that.” – Karen Rinaldi
What is something that you do in your life that you suck at…but….you love it?
For me, I’d say it’s tennis. I don’t suck at stand-up comedy, but it is something that I know is a constant work in progress…and, at the same time, is really exciting to me and hasn’t, for some reason, discouraged me. It’s actually inspired me and it led me to be better at other things, such as podcasting and thinking on my feet and not having a filter 🙂
