I think about this all the time.
Sun Tzu famously wrote, “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
At this stage in my life, I’m right there. I think I know who I am, but I’m still figuring out what I want out of life. Thanks for reminding me that it’s okay to try and fail as I find my way!
