What would you do if you knew you could not fail?

What would you attempt
if you knew
you would not fail?

Some would think big.
He would ship
fresh water to Africa.
She would climb
Mt. Everest.

For some it is smaller.
The boy
who would ask out
the blonde
who sits in front of him
in English.
The child who would finally dig
her hole
to China.
The mother
who would inform
her drunken husband
that he is no longer welcome
in her children's home.

This was actually written on a license plate I came across. I thought it was a good prompt.
