If you're going to F*CK up, you should F*CK up BIG and here's why!

I'm sure you've heard the phrase, "if you're going to mess up, mess up big!"

But have you ever thought about WHY you should mess up big?

Has it ever been explained to you?

The reason you want to mess up big is because it makes it very obvious. When something is so obvious, you'll have a better chance of correcting it because the mistake has all of your attention and you'll be aware of it long after the mistake has happened.

If you don't mess up big and you try to "hide it," then it's easier to brush the mistake over and you might not even address it at all.

Does that make sense?

If anything, you should always do everything with conviction; like you mean to do it! When you do that, you reinforce your proficiency because there's no doubt in your mind what the correct action is.

Kinda like life :P

Make sense?

So go F*CK up and do it BIG! If it’s during a performance, own it like it’s supposed to happen in the show. If it’s during practice or rehearsal, analyze, adjust and then correct on the next rep.

What do you think?

Is there any value in messing up in a BIG way?
