That's a great question.
I tried to think of my biggest desires. Be it traveling and seeing the world, or performing at Carnegie Hall, I'm not sure it would be as much of a thrill if I knew I wouldn't fail.

The undertaking is what makes it great... the accomplishment. Guaranteed success is just boring.

I think it would be wonderful if I couldn't fail, but that is not, and never will be what will take place. As a hypothetical, though, it's amusing to entertain such a possibility. It would eliminate any element of surprise or excitement which would be a problem if that's what turns you on.
