My friend has a mantra: if you never do, you never know.
He found that saying on the back of a Taco Bell sauce packet and has been traveling full-time ever since.
We love to make assumptions, especially when it comes to things we’ve never done. We tend to disregard ideas even before testing them out, just like trusting an old map that says “here be dragons.” But what if there aren’t dragons? What if there’s buried treasure?
Before ruling it out, try it first. If nothing comes of it, at least you know now.
