This is just an experiment.
Many years ago, Barbara Sher, a wonderful woman who's old enough to be a grandmother to most of us, figured out a secret to success. It may sound too simple.
It requires you to check a couple of boxes to ensure you're working the magic formula correctly.
First, you cannot be successful alone. What might that even look like?
"Isolation is the dream killer." she says.
Let's just take her word for it and carry on.
Second, you must get help.
To get help, you follow a simple request formula to a group of people. (In this experiment, the group is us here on 200WaD.
To get the help, you state out loud, ( or in the comments ) your situation using the Magic Formula.
The Magic Formula (Fill in these blanks:)
I want to do / be / have _______________ but I can't because _________________ .
Let's have some fun.
Fill in this formula in a comment below.
There are several hundred of us here on 200WaD now, but for this to work, you only need one good connection / piece of advice / link to a resource, etc.
Here is an example sentence:
I want to bring my idea to life but I can't ( code / design / market / write / etc. )
The wish: ( bring my idea to life )
The obstacle: code / design / market / write / etc.
People can help you get anything you want.
To trick them into helping you, you just have to say what you want and tell them why you can't get it. Our brains will be triggered to solve the puzzle ( of making you wrong about not being able to get your wish ).
Do we want to make you wrong? I don't know. Maybe, deep down, none of us believe we humans actually have real limitations — especially for simple human desires that others have possibly already solved.
Homework: Use the Magic Formula in the comments.
I want to stop drinking coffee for a month, but it's a very strong habit that I tell myself I enjoy. Help! ( in the comments )
