A fabulous colleague once told me about a bunge jumping story that had her shaking in her shoes while standing on top of that ratty old bridge. She had committed to the experience and was super excited and then when she was standing on the bridge to make the jump she felt the fear coming over her, the instructor said we are going to count to 3 and then jump. The instructor started to count 1 – 2- and she jumped. She jumped because she knew that if she waited one second longer that was all she needed to talk her self out of it. So she jumped.
I feel like I am in the midst of a Jump on 2 experience. It certainly isn’t the same adrenialin rush like bunge jumping off a bridge but it is close. After years of observing entreprenuers launch businesses and generating ideas of all of the things I could totally do– I am going Jump on 2 and launch a podcast that I have been thinking about way too long.
Hindsight, I could have and should have taken the plunge 5 years ago when I first started to realize my talents and specifically my slight edge. I am excited to finally share it with a community of professionals I call my tribe.
