Hey Puttylike readers, we’re trying something new this month—and we want to invite you to do the same!
As multipotentialites, our interests branch far and wide, and it’s not uncommon to discover something new that we’re excited about exploring. Sometimes we jump in, completely unafraid. But other times, in the face of a new interest, we get nervous or intimidated. We might decide to ignore the excitement we have about it, until it fades, rather than try something that might make us look silly.
This April, we’re celebrating and exploring all of those feelings. Yes, we’re even celebrating the nervousness (sometimes fear is just an indicator that we’re pursuing something important to us).
We’re calling it Newbie Month! And throughout April, we’re going to bring you a series of articles that have stories and advice for when you’re trying new things: new skills, new fields, new projects. It’s the perfect time to finally try that new thing that’s been tugging on you recently… You know the one. ;)
Yes You May
Then, in May, we’re going to continue the celebration of “newbie-ness” over in the Puttytribe with Yes You May: a month-long challenge to let yourself fail, try new things, be curious and embrace all of YOU! There will be weekly video check-in huddles with your fellow multipotentialites, on-going support in the forum, and even a show and tell at the end of the month!
For now, we want to kick off Newbie Month by asking you to share:
Do you have a story about a time you tried something new that scared you, and how you dealt with it? Got any tips or ideas for beginners in general, or specifically for beginners in a certain field? Comment below!
At the end of the month, we’ll be highlighting some of your stories on the blog and we hope to see some of you over in the Puttytribe for Yes You May, too.
Let’s jump in and be newbies together! Look out for our first article of Newbie Month next Wednesday. Until then, share your newbie stories and tips with us in the comments below!
