A great deal of self-reliance comes from just choosing to NOT be immobilized by a lack of information.
For instance, if you have a question about Aweber, you have a couple of options.
1. You can ask your sponsor and do nothing until you hear back from her. The fact that she’s on vacation means you’ll be stuck on that issue until she responds in a week when she gets home.
2. You can come ask the Extreme Team group here. Not a bad choice. But, it still puts you in “hold” mode.
3. You could consult Aweber’s excellent online help directory (unless your question is related to specific letters or links we provide here in the Extreme Team.)
4. You could say, “If my sponsor got abducted by aliens and the Extreme Team vanished…..what would I do RIGHT NOW to stay in forward motion?”
