DO YOU THINK IT’S EVER POSSIBLE TO BE AN OVERNIGHT SUCCESS?
In this time of TikTok and social media it seems a lot easier to get noticed. Though, every overnight success that I have ever heard about has poured years of deliberate training and focused practice into their craft. I think to be a success of any kind what you do has to be sustainable. I am a believer in Malcolm Gladwell’s 10,000 hours theory. This is a good recent recording of his ideas (slightly revised).
I enjoy answering tough questions if for no other reason to challenge myself to dig deep and tap into what I know to be true to my core, for me, no bullshit; and, I want to encourage others to show up and answer their own tough questions. In the midst of packing and moving in mid-October 2020, I got an email from BestSelf™ about an ICEBREAKER “Deeper Talk” deck. A deck? Hello? I’m IN! This deck contains 150 questions split across 6 different categories: Beliefs, Courage, Dreams, Exposed, Life Lessons and Self-Awareness. How tough can it be? We’re about to find out. 150 weeks of answers. (I’m so much better with giving the answers than asking the questions.) I do hope you share your answers with me! #letshaveaconversation #deepertalkdeck
