To ask or not to ask?
The prospect you won’t call because she might reject you? You’re rejecting them already with your avoidance. The girl you won’t ask out. The book you won’t start. The investor you won’t pitch. Etc. Etc. Etc.
One rejection is explicit and fast. The other is quiet and slow.
One frees you to move on to what’s next. The other keeps you circling a drain.
Do you prefer it fast or slow?
