Be a Goldfish

Started watching Ted Lasso today and I didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised that it's full of lessons.

Couldn't pick a favorite scene, but this one will stay with me:

Sam Obisanya: [Sam has just missed a block during practice]  Coach, I'm sorry.

Ted Lasso: You know what the happiest animal on Earth is? It's a goldfish. You know why?

Sam Obisanya: No.

Ted Lasso: Got a ten-second memory. Be a goldfish, Sam. Yeah?

A beautiful reminder to not dwell on our mistakes and shortcomings.
