Do the damn thing... with help

Sometimes, it's really hard to just do the damn thing. Say "I want to break up. I love you, but we're not right for each other." Say "No, I don't work on weekends." Get your workout clothes on your body, then leave the house.

And especially: Carve out time and space for the creative side project you've been talking about (maybe for years).

Look, it's time. Year's end and all that. Enlist the help of others to do the damn thing you want to try. We're social animals. Doesn't it feel easier to do something if you have a couple people supporting you through it, checking in?

I used to try to do everything by myself. It was based on a desire to be self-sufficient, not needing other people to get out of a jam or solve a puzzle. Well, guess what. It created a powerful drag that slowed me up for years. People are incredible resources if you let them be.

The bravest people I know reach out when they need help. That's how they're able to accomplish so much.

Who do you feel comfortable leaning on?
