Well, February flew by, chutzpah-wise, and not just because it has fewer days. Startup of the Project consumed more cycles than one would have thought (doesn’t it always?), and remaining mindful of the month’s Four Interventions was more problematic than I would have thought going into it.
So much so that I’m going to continue two of the Interventions – “Associate with People with Chutzpah” and “Become Aware of What You’re Afraid Of” – into March.
Together with two new ones: “Work with Enemies”, and “Do What You’re Afraid Of.”
“Do What You’re Afraid Of” ratchets up the fear factor from simply being aware of something terrifying to actually doing the terrifying thing, or doing part of it.
Two possibilities: this will terrify me so much that I’ll just become even less mindful of fearful things, or it will force them more into the foreground. We’ll see.
The other Intervention, “Work With Enemies”, is trying to develop chutzpah by stretching me out of working only with people I like. What a limitation! How liberating it would be to be free of it.
And then, of course, continue with “Dare to Fawn” and “Become Aware of What You’re Afraid Of”.
Looks like a great March!
