Today’s TED is from Tim Ferriss on Why you should define your fears instead of your goals.
“The hard choices — what we most fear doing, asking, saying — are very often exactly what we need to do. How can we overcome self-paralysis and take action? Tim Ferriss encourages us to fully envision and write down our fears in detail, in a simple but powerful exercise he calls “fear-setting.” Learn more about how this practice can help you thrive in high-stress environments and separate what you can control from what you cannot.”
Tim discusses how to work through our worst fears by listing what we’re afraid of, define what the fears are, ways to prevent it, and ways you can REPAIR the damage if it comes to fruition.
Then he asks you review the benefits at just trying whatever you’re questioning… and the cost of inaction.
Sometimes #VOWrepair is about doing all we can to avoid disaster. Sometimes it is about fixing what is broken. And sometimes it’s just about thinking things through to figure out a solution you don’t immediately see.
