I was recently at a black-tie wedding. All the men fell into one of four categories:
- Those who could tie their own bow tie by practicing beforehand
- Those who tried really hard but ultimately (and humbly) had to ask for help
- Those who didn't try and (unapologetically) asked for help straight away
- Those who wore a clip-on
Kind of a metaphor for life.
By the way, it's really easy to learn.
