One of our favorite lines in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is in the very first chapter, when Vernon Dursley is introduced:
“He hurried to his car and set off for home, hoping he was imagining things, which he had never hoped before, because he didn’t approve of imagination.”
Can you imagine how differently Harry’s life would have gone if he’d decided to be more of a Dursley than a Potter? If he’d dedicated his life to being normal and rational and reasonable? We’re imagining something like:
“Harry decided it wasn’t particularly sensible to leave his life at Number 4 Privet Drive behind to attend a school where they study ridiculous subjects like flying and potions making. He lived in the cupboard under the stairs until he was old enough to start an internship at Grunnings, where he learned how to fill orders for drills. He wasn’t happy, but he was practical, and that’s what mattered! The end.”
One of the biggest cons we’ve pulled on ourselves is believing that being reasonable is actually safe and productive. In this month’s brand-new Side Chat, we’re dispelling (dispelling … get it) you of that notion. We’re talking about…
- Rachel’s realization that being “reasonable” actually caused trauma that it took about 15 years to heal from.
- All the things we think we need to be practical and rational about, but that are actually just holding us down.
- The difference between being “unreasonable” and “irresponsible.”

1:1 COACHING IS BACK!
Coaching enrollment is happening NOW! A few pointers to keep in mind:
- Instead of taking on clients whenever, we take them on a few times per year, in waves.
- Continuing until Friday, May 28, we’re accepting sign-up forms for potential new clients.
- We’re taking on about 10-15 people, max, and some of those spots are already gone!
- This is for people interested in getting started ASAP (within the next 4 weeks).
- If you’re not ready now then you can add your name to the wait list, and we’ll contact you if and when we have an availability in the future.
- You don’t have to be 100% certain that this is right for you — but serious enough to want to discuss it.
