I have to admit – this #KickAssVideoChallenge has kicked my ass – and I’m still going – in the wrong order.
Worse than being foolish?
When challenge #2 came out “Creating Deep Connections” – I stalled. I knew I was going to have to do this, but I could feel the resistance.
I was to send three videos. To a friend, to a fellow #KickAssVideoChalleng(er), and to “A person in your life that has contributed to your growth this year.”
This was brilliant – to do great “business video” you need to get comfortable connecting with other people on camera.
And that’s not something I find easy (you’re all wonderful, but honestly, on this end of the video YOU ARE A COLD PSYCHOPATHIC JUDGMENTAL EYE OF MORDOR.
Your complete lack of verbal cues makes it really hard to be emotive in any manner without feeling completely fake.
I have no problem being foolish, but I really don’t want to be thought a fool.
So, skipping challenge number 2 (and 3 – more on that tomorrow…), I jumped into something more in my comfort zone…
If you don’t go further than this video – that’s OK – that’s great even… 😛
Back to being a fool
I knew the person I wanted to send my person-who-contributed-to-my-growth video to.
I’m really not a fanboy-type person. And, it seems almost every sentence I speak these days starts with some variation of “Tim Ferriss said…”.
OK, so I don’t “see” myself as a fanboy type person, but am quite clearly acting like a smitten teenager.
So with great regret & much hope this remains mostly invisible & with tremendous gratitude for Jan & Nat for creating a brilliant “comfort zone” challenge, I send this to Mr Ferriss:
(Oh, and I almost forgot… Tim Ferriss says to practice getting out of your comfort zone…)
Gah – watching this again, I still feel a need to unpublish. And I know most (all?) reading are really thinking ‘this isn’t a big deal, get over it’. Ah well – two good lessons #comfortzone & #imperfectaction.
