Over yourself


In the rush, at the beginning, when everyone is excited and full of the possibilities of the thing, it’s easy to get carried away with it all. Setting off without thought, without an idea of what or you’ll need, let alone the challenges you’ll meet along the way. It’s such an adventure.

After a while, in the difficult middle, or maybe it’s just the first time the sun sets and you start to feel the magnitude of the situation, you wish you’d taken a little more time, brought a few more resources, put in a bit more thought, and asked for some help.

You didn’t. Now, you’re on your own.

Except you’re not. All you have to do it get over yourself, eat some breakfast that includes humility-mash, and raise your hand. There’s always someone willing to help.

Skippy strategy: It’s never too late to get over yourself.
