“Today you’re going to listen to some music, then pair up with someone and then make a piece of music to play in front of the rest of the class.”
Everyone loved music lessons at school. Even the people who sucked and had no musical talent whatsoever. Usually at the end of the lesson the class would have some good laughs at some of the music, but the lesson itself was enjoyed by everyone.
Imagine if at work you got asked to do something way out of your comfort zone and then show it to your work mates at the end of the day. People would be having panic attacks and feigning illness.
When do people stop giving themselves permission to fail?
When was the last time you gave yourself permission to fail?
If you aren’t failing then you have absolutely zero chance of success.
