How to Overcome Your Fears

Tomorrow morning I will be jumping out of an airplane while I’m in Texas. I’m here to speak at and attend OpenCamp, put on by Cali Lewis. When I was asked if I would consider jumping out of an airplane from a gazillion miles high up in the air, my first thought was a very loud HELL NO. I am, after all, not so fond of heights. Flying on a trapeze the other day during the Gnomedex wrap party nearly gave me heart failure.

So why am I doing it? It’s simple: I need to face my fears head-on. Nike says we should “Just Do It!” I’m going to do exactly that. I will slap on the funky goggles, grab a parachute, close my eyes and scream like a girl all the way down. I’ve heard that even if you’re afraid it’s still the biggest rush of adrenaline you could ever imagine. I’m counting on that.
