20 Seconds of Courage

Check out this brief clip called "20 Seconds of Courage" from the movie We Bought a Zoo. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmMFIganRQY

We all can relate to teenage angst but how can you apply this axiom in your work today? Where and with whom would 20 seconds of courage make a huge difference?

Where is potential embarrassment holding you up? Where is fear keeping you from what is best for all? Can you psych yourself up for 20 seconds to:
  • Ask for a raise?
  • Hold a colleague accountable to a team agreement?
  • Follow your intuition?
  • Have that difficult conversation?
  • Say what is unsaid?
  • Make a request?
"I promise you something great will come of it."
