Facing The Suck

Updated: Dec 19, 2018

Starting a business is harder than I ever expected. (I know everyone warns about this.) I am growing and learning more than I have ever in my life.


The most significant positive change for me has been "facing the suck." When I'm really anxious about something, I can no longer hide or push it off to someone else.


Instead, I take a deep breath and block off an hour to just face it. I map out what I'm afraid of, what is unknown, and then develop a plan. I'm shocked at the impact on my life. Usually, the facts aren't nearly as scary as the stories in my head, and I often develop 3 to 4 great ideas for mitigating any risks.


What are you most afraid of or worried about? Stop letting it consume you and just face it.


You've got this.
