I recently watched We Bought a Zoo on DVD and, besides being pleasantly surprised about the entertainment value of the movie, I heard a great quote by Matt Damon’s character: All you need is 20 seconds of insane courage and I promise you something great will come out of it.
I love that quote! How many times have you just brushed away the fear, summoned up the courage, and did something without overthinking the possibility of a negative outcome? I guarantee the result was memorable.
One Moore Thing: Use 20 seconds insane courage to to walk up to a big-time prospect at an event, or to call that upset customer, or to volunteer for something. The consequences will follow… and they’re bound to move you to greatness.
