I find it amazing all of the things I was told that I could not do when I was younger. When we are young Airmen and NCOs, we are so filled with passion and motivated to fix things. However, their ideas are shut down before the first step is taken. I know I have re-attacked some of my old ideas now that I am more seasoned and they were shockingly easy. They would have been just as easy when I was an Airman, I just didn’t have people telling me it wasn’t possible now. The next time you have an idea or hear one from a teammate, give it some encouragement. It is better to try and fail than to do nothing.
