Almost every day, I’m surprised again by someone willing to believe that a situation is impossible to work through.
The mountain is too high.
The project is too big.
The problem is complex.
Learning is hard.
Change is scary.
It is always easier to talk to everyone you know about a problem you’re facing than it is to just buckle down and change the thing that will solve it. Looking at the real reason problems are occurring is the only way they get solved.
Truthfully, mountains can be climbed. Projects can be accomplished. Problems can be solved. Learning is fun. Change is an adventure.
Nothing is impossible when you see every single challenge you face as a learning opportunity.
Imagine if adults approached life with the determination and fearlessness of a two-year-old? I doubt we’d be wondering where the next big innovation was going to come from… or wondering if the potential for innovation somehow stopped when social media was created and we all started staring at our phone to escape our challenges.
Engage with your challenge. Climb your mountain. Conquer that crazy project. You do know how… and if you don’t, Google does. If Google doesn’t know, even better. You’re exploring new territory.
Learning is good. You can. And don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t.
