Its just a little mold…it won't kill you

Penecillin was discovered by accident. A sloppy workspace led to cross-contamination of Petri dishes. Dr Fleming had a choice to make: start over or explore the possible. He chose the possible.

Many of us see the unexpected and react, with knee-jerk reflex… This isn’t what I wanted. When we condemn the unexpected, we kill the possible.

Dr. Fleming took the time to see what was happening in the unexpected. This kindled the possible. The result was a crucial advance in medicine … The birth of antibiotics. Millions of lives saved.

In the face of the unexpected, look for what’s possible … You may change the world.
