REAL WOMEN. REAL LIVES.
In today’s episode, Barb and Melissa discuss how perceiving something as unreasonable comes from doubt, especially when we are in uncharted territory. They encourage us to get less ‘reasonable’ and listen to our wisdom rather than preconceived ways of doing things.
In what areas of life could you get a little less reasonable?
Barb shares her experience over the past couple of months where she has come face to face with reasonable thinking looking, well, reasonable—and not recognizing it as doubt. [00:03:53]
Melissa is fired up at Barb’s assertion that being unreasonable is actually a good thing. She incredulously conveys ways ‘unreasonable’ has gotten us to where we are today. [00:06:47]
Melissa discusses the time Human Resources literally laughed at her ‘unreasonable’ request, and the fortitude she had to push beyond their reaction and get what she wanted. [00:07:37]
Barb conveys her distrust of things that are reasonable just to be reasonable, even calling out that many times our construct of ‘reasonable’ is actually an illusion. [00:13:38]
Melissa reminisces about a conversation she had many years ago with an executive about people working remotely. That idea was not well-received, and was even deemed ‘unreasonable.’ Get the picture yet? [00:16:15]
