The 77% Weekly
The 40/52-weeks-a-year, quick-reading, thought-lingering, spiritual-religious newsletter.

Religion-Outside-The-Box ( is a donation supported not-for-profit empowering adults to find and be with (the) God (of their understanding).  

From the desk of Rabbi Brian


Better to do something imperfectly than to do nothing perfectly.
Robert Schuller

Read the above quote by Robert Schuller. (Read it twice if you want.)

Remember it.

Now scroll down.

Scroll down a few more lines.

A few more.

Surprise quiz!

that you can’t see Robert Schuller’s quote, what was it that he said?
(Don’t look!) Take a guess if you don’t remember it exactly… that’s
the point, right?

(If you scrolled up to check, you’ve probably got a problem with perfection.)

We’re often afraid that we aren’t going to get things exactly right and so we just don’t try.  We can be guaranteed to fail if we don’t try.
We tend to be so perfection focused that we won’t try something unless we know we are going to do well. What a shame!

Spiritual-religious exercise for the week: try and fail!


With love,

Rabbi Brian

The 77% Weekly: The Religion-Outside-The-Box Newsletter
helps people find and be with (the) God (of their understanding) 40 out of 52 weeks a year.

Why 77%?
Two reasons:
1) 40/52 = 0.76923. The newsletter is sent every Monday except the last of each month.
2) In school 77% was a passing grade and ROTB is delighted to remind you that life isn’t graded.
