From the shadows


No one likes being wrong, and asking for help doesn’t come natural to many people. But there’s a difference between being careful and hiding in the shadows to avoid failure.

I’m not sure that there’s a specific balance that I’d recommend (or even that I consistently achieve myself), but I do know that it’s easy for an aversion to fear to turn into productivity paralysis.

Interestingly, being proactive about addressing the things you don’t know and need help with and fear and struggle with…is the best way to keep these things under control and master your weaknesses.
