"100 Days of Rejection Therapy" — What hurts you makes you stronger
Long story short from the January 14 issue of Bloomberg Businessweek: Budding entrepreneur Jia Jiang "makes at least one preposterous demand every day, records a video of himself doing it, and posts it on a blog on his website, entresting.com."
Up top is yesterday's entry.
"His project, "'100 Days of Rejection Therapy,' is based on the idea that once you're used to the strange looks, rude comments, and outright dismissal of everything you're trying to achieve, you'll be able to overcome whatever makes you nervous...."
Makes perfect sense to me.
More: "Jiang started his project on November 15…. It hasn't been easy coming up with 100 different harebrained schemes."
"It takes Jiang two to three hours to complete a rejection and blog about it each day. More than 260,000 people visited his website in the first three weeks of the project."
"Whether or not he's the next Bill Gates, Jiang has discovered through 100 Days of Rejection that he can consistently come up with entertaining ideas — and that there may be more than one path forward. After a month and a half of 'no,' 'no way,' and 'never,' Jiang no longer feels the sting of [an] original investor’s rejection. As he puts it: 'I feel like I have swagger now.'"

Two thumbs up.
"strange looks, rude comments, and outright dismissal of everything you're trying to achieve"
This could also be refered to as "ex-wife therapy."

It is obvious Mr. Jiang never worked at AT&T during the so-called glory years. He would have had a never-ending supply of hare-brained demands.
