Day 10 - Four Tips on Owning Your Rejection Challenge

This challenge has been pretty game changing

Here is the breakdown. It's intimidating. It has pushed me to the limit, but despite meeting my ultimate doom (rejection), I have, every time, without a doubt, felt incredible afterwards. Think, complete and utter victory.

However, with that in mind, there are a lot of things I would have done differently.

Here are my four tips to the rejection challenge:

1. Do it with a buddy

  • Surprisingly, despite actually trying to get people to do it with me, no one jumped in. The irony of my first rejection. Perhaps I need some sales work.

2. Record it live on FB

  • I have kept tabs through Snapchat and this Google doc, I even use Facebook to redirect people my Snapchat. Crazy I know. Expect live feeds from here on out.

3. Do each challenge at least three times

  • It just makes it more of an event, doing it once, I found myself getting all worked up over a task and in 30 seconds it was over.

4. Commit the time to it

  • For me, I let my busy San Francisco life take over. I found myself knocking out tasks at 11:00 pm to beat my midnight deadline. I don't recommend this. Let yourself have fun with it.

That's pretty much it folks.

Stay tuned. We still have a Tesla to drive and CEOs to interview.
