The Hard Thing Rule

Welcome, you have found one of my resources. Make sure you see everything it is linked to at the bottom. You can also go to my resources to find a searchable index of all the quotes, books, podcasts, webpages...I have catalogued.

  1. Everyone (including parents) has to do one hard thing
  2. You can quit, when the season is over or tuition is done, but not in the middle.
  3. YOU get to pick your hard thing, no one picks it for you.
  4. In high school, you have to pick something else and stick with it for two years. It can be another commitment with your primary hard thing, or something totally different.
