    Creating Space for Learning – Objective [action/progress]

    1. Become oriented to the GEA and complete intro assignments [working thru Base Camp]
    2. Clear space for learning [unsubscribed from 60 email lists…surprised it had grown to that level!]
    3. Create a place to document goals, log progress and collect resources [opened a MS-OneNote notebook, started a paper notebook]
    4. Connect with an accountability buddy [done]
    5. Schedule a regular time to log in and engage [6-7am 5 days/week]
    6. Look at what other climbers are creating [visited one website]
    7. Support others on their adventure [posted a couple of comments]

    Overcoming fear:
    I am releasing my concerns that my ecourse will not be
    perfectly correct, creative or complete.


    From  life coach Rebecca Hass (on CBC Radio)


    The inner critic/judge/gremlin takes many forms (a voice from the past protecting us from being hurt):

    1. The perfectionist says to try something new because it won’t work or won’t be good enough.
    2. The pretender says you’re a fraud, and everyone’s going to catch on.
    3. The failer says you are doomed to fail.
    4. The humble one says you’re being vain and showing off.
    5. The low self esteem voice says you are not good enough.

    Strategies for dealing with the inner voice of judgement: Notice it > name it > write out what it is saying for 1 min > read it out loud > acknowledge it/play with it > replace it with a voice that supports your goal (the VOJ may not share your values…it might be someone else’s or be outdated).

    Shine a light on it, take it for tea, have a conversation, then recommit by taking action on what you intended to do.

    Thanks for naming each of these and to speaking to them with solutions so well Daniel. I think this is the hardest part for most of us creators. These inner critics that tell us we’ll never do it, never be good enough, so why bother trying.

    I hope a lot of people read what you’ve shared here and take their critic to tea, just like you!

    Shine a light on it, take it for tea, have a conversation, then recommit by taking action on what you intended to do.

    I love that you’re taking it for tea! That’s awesome!! You’ve inspired me to revisit my VOJ & VOW from a previous course. We had to draw our gremlin with it’s voices of judgment, then see what our voice of wisdom says.

    Thank you so much for sharing, Daniel! This is very inspirational!! Next time my VOJ shows up, I’m going to put on some tea too! 😉 I really love how you wrote out all your examples here too. Thank you!

    Also love how you listed out all your action steps for your GEA adventure.
