If you could do something you have never done before, and be guaranteed to succeed, what would it be?

Get married again. But I have no faith I could make it work so... single unto death.

Learn to swim.

Win the lottery.

Guaranteed to succeed eh?

Well that opens things up a bit then! Here goes:

Train to become a singer/actor/garden or interior designer/architect/writer/painter/child psychologist and general Bon vivaunt (sorry can’t spell french words-should just have put hostess with the mostess!!) that’ll do for now😆

Start my own business. I had several ideas (some since opened by others!) but was too nervous to take the plunge

I'm with KatyK I'd learn to swim.
I envy people who can swim as it's good exercise if you aren't very mobile.
I tried to learn to swim when I was 28. I had lessons at a local swimming baths in a mixed group. After a few weeks we were supposed to stand a few feet off the side edge and swim a couple of strokes towards it. I totally panicked and went under the water and ended up scrabbling at a young man's groin trying to find something to get hold of as i thought I was drowning.
I was absolutely mortified and so embarrassed I never went back. So still can't swim to this day.

I would love to be able to play the stock market.
I have a bit of money in savings accounts but would love to have the courage to try investing to make the money work better for me.

They say don't play the market unless you are willing to lose - well I am not, it was too hard come by!

I would like to wing-walk on an old plane. And go to the bottom of the sea in a submersible.

I used to love Esther Williams films and vowed that one day I'd swim like she did-----I never went near the water and wish that I had have done but would have felt self-conscious if I'd gone under and flapped around.

I was going to say win the lottery but Sue Donim beat me to it.
Go to university and get a degree in French

To be able to paint/draw I haven't got an artistic bone in my body.
Learn to swim on my list too.

sodapop you don't have to be a wonderful artist. You can still enjoy painting. I do.
