Picture from Lagos, Portugal
(6 min read)
A couple of years back, an acquaintance and results coach I held deep respect for told me, “Jane, you have to be more unreasonable in what you want out of your life and dreams.”
I couldn’t believe what I heard and felt an instant overwhelming sense of irritation.
Did she just ask me be an unreasonable person?
Needless to say, the emotional and quick-tempered me went into a direct conflict with her. I vehemently disagreed, retorting that the proposition was totally irresponsible and illogical. Doesn’t she know that the word “unreasonable” has a stinky reputation and how can anyone who cares want me to be that person?
