Jeg kan selv!!

Spoken like a 3-year-old. Not wanting help. I can do this on my own. I WANT to do it on my own. I don’t need anybody to help me.

Isn’t it fascinating how that’s still our behaviour decades later, as leaders, parents, friends and human beings?

Some of us want to prove we can do it ourselves. Others feel embarrassed to ask for help.

No matter what, here’s the thing: we CAN do it all ourselves. But letting go of that old pattern and allowing others to add their part might just be worth a try.

Personally, I’ll give myself the challenge: to swap “jeg kan selv” with “let’s do it together”. Do you want to join?
