Why Give a Damn:
Because “you don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great”. This week’s Editor’s Pick is meant to inspire you to take action toward what you really want to do.
What you don’t see is the self doubt, the lost sleep, the lonely nights spent working.
This week’s pick is “Guy Learns to Dance in a Year”, but this isn’t about dancing. It’s about starting. Starting something that you’ve always dreamed of doing. Maybe you’re an entrepreneur dying to start your first business. Maybe you’re an athlete trying to get off the couch and run your first marathon. Maybe you’re a songwriter dreaming of writing your first song.
Dancer, Karen X. Cheng says: “When you watch someone perform, you’re seeing them at the top of their game. When they score the winning point or sell their company for millions — you’re seeing them in their moment of glory. What you don’t see is the thousands of hours of preparation. You don’t see the self doubt, the lost sleep, the lonely nights spent working. You don’t see the moment they started. The moment they were just like you, wondering how they could ever be good.”
At Unreasonable Group we value Daily Habits & Learning so much so that we put it at the top of our weekly & monthly Action Items, and if we miss a day we put $50 into the “Unreasonable Party Jar”, (that’s a good motivator to do what you say you want to do). My goal this year is to fully incorporate movement & exercise into my daily life, but after watching this video I think I’m going to change that to “become an athlete” because it sounds way more inspiring to me.
