-| search the ladder|-

 While it might be fun (or appear expedient, or brave, or heroic) to try to scale a cliff with no tools, it turns out that ladders are a more effective way to level up.
When it’s time to drive a nail, a hammer is a lot more useful than a rock. Even if you have to invest in obtaining one.
Often, we spend most of our time throwing ourselves at the wall instead of investing the time to find a useful ladder instead.
Perhaps, instead of restating our audacious goals, we can spend more time finding useful tools–insights, skills, trust, attention, access–instead.
It’s worth the search.

-| Ditch the bravado |- 
If you are stuck between a rock and a hard place or hanging off a cliff, what would you do? Scream for help or pretend you don’t need it with a dash of bravado?
The answer seems obvious. Our reaction, as well, would be obvious.
Why, then, do we bother with the bravado in our normal lives? We are often between a rock and a hard place at work, in our relationships, with our finances etc. Why, then, do we not scream for help and get help?
Ditch the bravado. Ask for help. Learn. Move on. It’s okay to be in a bad place.
Once again, it’s okay..
