Forum Owner Belew private msg quote post Address this user
I am in a study with a group of young people.

We are learning that there are differnt kinds of hard stuff.

The book mentions 5. I can think of more.

What can you add?

1. Starting something from scratch.
2. Going outside your comfort zone.
3. Doing more than is expected.
4. Bringing together a team
5. Doing stuff without immediate payoff
6. Going against cultural norms
7. Finishing what you start.

Learning something outside your skill set.
Comforting someone who is grieving.
Standing up to a bully.
Enforcing personal boundaries in difficult situations.

waiting for team output
waiting for the result
waiting for payout

seeing the potential in things
seeing the potential in people

believing in yourself
believing in other people
believing that a higher power is going to help you realize your goals

@KitK

I see these falling under one of the 7.

Waiting on people = building a team.
waiting on payout = no immediate results.

Thanks for sharing!

@Belew 'finishing what you start'

That shouldn't be a 'hard thing to do'. It is a habit of a successful person.

For me - "All of the above" applies although I haven't had much practised with No. 4 until today.

Ah, @Belew I am putting together a grant application to get funding for a Journal Therapy course I want to run. I am seeking collaboration with different community groups and building a team that will support the program. It is aimed at isolated rural people and people with various levels of mental illnesses.

@SusanDay

How cool! How hard.

Let me know abt your lessons learned trying to get your team together.

That's something worth writing about at DGU?

For hard stuff:

Working with a team and the final results aren't yours. They're good, they're great - they're still not "all yours"
Learning to speak up.
Learning to listen objectively - seriously treat it as an option to consider

(This applies to anyone who has been working alone since day 1 or close to it.)

@rcayeras So true. I have never applied for a grant before. It's certainly a new experience. I'm hoping to add to my skills.

I totally agree with the list of hard things to do. I think is very complete.

For me is hard to have self confidence and not give much importance to what others may think.

@ivelisl

It is hard for me to listen to other people. 8-)
