Day Zero Project – First task

I’m working on my Day Zero Project and today I’m answering 50 Questions that will free your mind.
I’ve stopped myself reading other people’s answers until I’ve answered because I didn’t want to be influenced.
I’m looking forward to finding out what other people have answered once I’ve published 🙂

  2. Which is worse, failing or never trying? Failing because it’s better to try and fail than to regret trying.
