Boundaries are your declared parameters to explore and learn with confidence and to ensure you “win or learn” versus “win or lose.” Boundaries are a form of accountability as well, in that by setting them you are declaring what you will and will not do with each step of your journey.
To create Boundaries, ask yourself:
- What are you willing to invest in your Idea to take the next step?
- What are you not willing to invest?
- Can you take this step? Can you get your inner narrator on board?
- Money, time, relationships, reputation, opportunity cost, creative control.
Extra Credit: Think about where you naturally establish boundaries in your life. Do you budget? How do you allocate your time between work and life? What relationships do you have boundaries around? Make a list of the boundaries you already have and think about where you might be able to set others.
