Tearing down fences.


I’ve been thinking a lot about the fences we put up in our minds.

What would we love to do, but think impossible? What are we saying “no” to before others–people or markets–even have a chance to?

I recently found a card given to me when I was young. It had a quote from Shakespeare on it:

Our doubts are traitors,
and make us lose the good we oft might win,
by fearing to attempt.

–William Shakespeare

What are your mental fences? What fences have you put up on your team? Or at your business? What are important things you believe that you’ve given up on?

I invite you to examine the fences you’ve allowed others to put up, and the ones we’ve put up ourselves. And then tear them down.
