Fail, fail, fail, fail, succeed

In Extremis

Definition:

1) In an extremely difficult situation.

2) At the point of death.

Personally, I like the poetic imagery of the Latin translation:

In the farthest reaches.

So the next time you think you’re in deep shit, ask yourself this:

Am I in extremis?

I didn’t think so. Sometimes things aren’t as bad as you think.
