Career Courage Challenge, Day 14: Stop Doing One More Thing
YOUR CHALLENGE TODAY:
Did you do yesterday’s challenge, to Stop Doing Something? Good.
Now add one more thing to that list.
Yes, pick another thing to stop doing. Because for most of us, we’re so busy doing what we think we should do that we don’t have time to do the things we really long to do.
The things we’d do if we had the courage. Which now, two weeks into our challenge, you do.

Why a Career Courage Challenge?
Here at RedCapeRevolution.com, we’ve focused on three main things that we all need to have to soar in our careers (things we’ve learned through our research and conversations with you):
- Gaining Clarity: really seeing and understanding what’s unique and special about you; what your superpowers are and how you can bring them to work;
- Building Confidence: feeling strong and sure about who you are, and what you’re doing now and in the future, and;
- Taking Control: choosing to take action on the things you want and need in your work and life.
But in last year’s reader survey, I asked, “If you could take a superpill that would help you overcome your biggest challenge, what would that pill do?” here’s what you said:[blockquote]The pill would give me the words and courage to express to our executives how damaging these yo-yo initiatives are.
It would give me courage to ask for opportunities when I meet people.
Sometimes small setbacks throw me into doubt. The pill would make me believe in me first.[/blockquote]
So it sounds like there’s a new C emerging: courage. And I’m right there with you, because I’m seeking courage, too.
To play bigger. Serve you better. Impact more people like you. To make hard choices about who I want to be, where I want to be, how I want to spend more of my time and where I need to spend less.
That’s why I wanted to experiment with this free, 30-Day Career Courage Challenge. I’m going to push myself beyond my comfort zone, and I hope you’ll play along with me, too. I hope you’ll share your experiences in the Comments below, on Facebook or LinkedIn, or by email.
I can’t wait to grow my courage muscles with you.
