Hope 

I realized yesterday a big part of my hesitation about presenting concepts is that a NO kills hope, and with little going well the narcotic effect of hope is not something easily given up. But I’ve adjusted my thinking – rejection is only the death of that particular hope, and my experience has been that in the process of pitching a concept it is often improved by critique and questions. So I’m making a game of this, trying to hear NO as many times as possible this week. Replace dread with eager anticipation.
