When you jump with a safety net, it doesn’t really matter if you don’t make it. You’ll be fine.
The thing about safety nets is that they lure you into a false sense of security. They make the achievement of making it to the other side less important. If you don’t make it… Meh.
But, when you jump without a safety net, all of a sudden, making it to the other side is make or break. It’s do or die.
Without a safety net, you have to make it. There’s no alternative.
Where are you trying to jump to? And what’s your safety net?
