Do you have the courage—and creativity—to really follow your dreams? Career coach Laura Simms once decided she really wanted to meet Aaron Sorkin, the writer behind the TV show The West Wing and the movie The Social Network, among others. Reaching him personally would be difficult, if not impossible, so she took an unconventional approach.
Now, many people say things like, “I’d like to meet this famous person.” But most people would not then go about making it happen.
But Laura believed in the impossible. She started a blog called “Letters to Aaron Sorkin,” and she posted short letters there every few days. Eventually Sorkin heard about the blog and emailed her personally.
In the meantime, her friends rallied around her, and someone got her tickets to a screening of one of Sorkin’s films where the screenwriter addressed the audience afterward and they spoke in person. Not only did she achieve her goal, she had lots of fun along the way.
Most of us would say to ourselves, “Oh, I can’t do something like that. It’s like stalking, or begging.” But Laura just saw it differently. And because she saw it differently, it was different. The experience she had was different, and the experience others had of her was different.
When it comes to creating your dreams, how do you see things?
