There’s a CEO of a company in Manhattan that has a Fear Jar on his desk. And whenever anyone in the office says something fearful, they have to put $1 in the Fear Jar. At the end of the year, there was enough money in the jar to finance the company’s holiday party.
One of about 100 things I find fascinating about that story is the CEO’s definition of ‘fear’. It encompassed:
This CEO was smart enough to know that every one of these feelings/behaviors is sourced from fear. And there is some serious fear in that company as evidenced by the holiday party funding.
What would happen if you had a Fear Jar on your desk? How full would it be if you opened it up to your office, your community, your family. What if it was just for you?
How ‘rich’ would you be?
