I've always been pretty good about reinventing myself. In fact, I have a pretty awesome process for doing that called "Strategic Planning For Your Life". Recently, however, I have felt pretty stuck. I have decided to shake things up a bit.
Along came Seth Godin, an extraordinary author for whom I have an enormous amount of respect. He is offering an amazing online course for freelancers through Udemy (although, I think his lectures and exercises apply to anyone). The price was right, so I signed up.
The course consists of 81 very short (2-3 minutes) lectures and a series of very introspective exercises, which he insists must be done "publicly". In other words, I have to knock down the walls of my comfort zone. I didn't think this would be hard. However, after watching the first 4 lectures and getting to the exercises, I froze! I'm not sure what that's about, but I will be pushing through this block over the next couple of weeks.
