Where are you stuck in carbon removal at this moment? Write it down.
What’s it going to take to get through it? What are you resisting?
Are you getting stuck on looking good? On your reputation?
Or is there potentially real planetary harm if things go wrong?
Stake your reputation on how much carbon you’ve removed. Bring your focus back to the bigger picture. I spend a lot of time worrying about typos. And I still make them. Know what matters.
