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.
