Rebel Question: What would you try now if you KNEW you could not fail?

Make a list of at least 10 things – and start one this week!

OK, new idea! I’ll post a coaching question for you and encourage you to answer it – here!

And THEN I thought it might be good if I showed the way… So, without thinking too hard I’ve rattled off the first 10 things that popped into my head – and here is my response:

I would 1) Write a book, 2) Cook a souffle, 3) Take more snowboarding lessons, 4) Grow avocados (yum!), 5) Get another dog to keep Dexter company (feeling sorry for aged cat so haven’t), 6) Build myself a new office, 7) Relax more, 8) Contact Lululemon with my idea, 9) Hire someone to do business admin for me and 10) Have laser-eye surgery…

So, looking at this list, I’m going to work on my Lululemon idea and have a proposal together by end March…

    Hi Emma Louise,

    I would try the luge!
    I would travel twice a year – at least once a year to far flung places off the beaten track.
    I would take a snowboarding lesson.
    I would hire an Assistant.
    I would try surfing…again.
    I would spend a coupe of weeks in an ashram in silent meditation.
    I would follow through on my marketing plan.
    I would stop making excuses.

    What will I do? I will implement stage 1 of my marketing plan tomorrow.

    • Awesome Delaney.

    Create more paintings and sell them unabashedly!
    Have my own TV show
    Do a triathlon
    Get a dog
    Hire more team members
    Launch not one, but two high end products
    Get a partner
    Teach, teach, teach
    Stop eating meat and dairy (is that a vegan?)
    Continue living in 2 countries indefinitely
