Have the courage to ask

Lack of courage has a cost

Why I hate asking

My core fear — I am not sure I will be giving them value by taking their time.

What I have discovered

Relationships > Transactions

What you can learn and do as a result

  1. Would you take the meeting if the other person asked? → Yes, make the meeting
  2. Would you be able to put that person up / help them by taking the meeting? → Yes, make the meeting and seek to provide them value
  3. Can you both learn something together? → Yes, bing, book it
  4. Are you speaking about what you love and enjoy? → Definitely, especially if they love it too

Time is valuable, but lessons are invaluable

Lessons are the cornerstone of who I am and who I will become, to lose them erases what and who I could have become tomorrow and in the future.
