To any opportunities that come your way. Even if you’re exhausted. Even if you don’t see the payback. Even if you’re nervous.
Friday I got a call from CNN asking to come on air and talk about politics. I hadn’t slept more than 5 hours in three weeks. I was just moving out of my home of 12 years at that very moment. I was boarding a plane for LA.
Instead of saying ‘sorry, I won’t be in NYC’ I said, ‘I would love to come to the LA bureau, would that work?’ followed by ‘Sure, 5am works for me!’ Gulp.
And it went great.
Just say yes.
