What would you do if you weren’t afraid?
I absolutely loved this question, posed in the book Who Moved my Cheese. This book packs a profound punch – in minimal time – addressing the topic of how to deal with change.
I read the whole thing on my 30minute boat ride this morning.
How much of what we do is driven by fear? A fear of the unknown? Fear of failure (or for fellow perfectionists, fear of simply not being the best)? A fear of change?
I want to rip this page out and carry it with me. I haven’t yet, but am seriously contemplating it.
A reminder to think less about what could go wrong, and more about all that could go right.
A reminder that more often than not, the expectation is much worse than reality.
A reminder to embrace the experience, the process – not only the destination.
After all, the journey is more than half the fun. It is the fun.
