    the awesome thing about this is that it would’ve been just as accurate to point the arrow completely outside all of the circles.

    I’d add a “sometimes” to the center, but the optimism involved would make me feel guilty for doing so.

    Benjamin Franklin, had he only been blessed with a bounty of notecards, would have certainly drawn this diagram, for it was he who said:

    “Do not fear mistakes. You will know failure. Continue to reach out.”

    Just before someone told him to go fly a kite.

    I so hope this is true.

    I , while certainly determined, fail and think all the time.

    Oh holy cow…

    I swear, I was just writing a novel about endohns and exohns – have about 30,000 words so far – and got stumped enough at at particular spot that I fired up Firefox, pointed it to Google Reader, and click on “Indexed.” And whaddya know, I see this.

    It didn’t exactly solve my block, but dang does it make me feel better.

    Jessica, one of your best ever. Thanks.

  8. Murray says:

    Awesome insight. Thanks.

    Love this one…! One of my favorites. I do hope it turns out to be true (especially right now).

  11. Damien says:

    These last three days of Indexed have been absolutely inspired. And I have one of your earlier ones (the intersection of ‘Where you are’ and ‘Where you want to be’ being ‘Lots and lots of work’) as my desktop wallpaper. As an early-career academic, it seems kind of appropriate. Anyway, thanks, and keep it up!

  12. Hertne says:

    I hope this is right.

    Right now, I’m more stumped than ever on a couple things.

    Thanks for the reminder.

  13. Rachael says:

    It’s weird, isn’t it, the feeling you get when you see something that is exactly what you need one day? Thankyou, Jessica
