“Faced with a daunting task — a marathon, a pretty girl on the street, or a startup launch — we often feel the fear, freeze and stop before we have begun.”
Seriously? Seriously! You are defining a daunting task as a ‘pretty girl on the street.’ What exactly makes her a daunting task? Are you planning to eat her? Are you planning to subdue her, rape her and make her have your babies? Seriously.
I get that you were probably just trying to be funny. But it’s not funny. Women are not men’s to conquer and own. Women have their own minds and agency. (Of course, I am assuming her that you mean ‘women’, after all girls are prepubescent females, and, well, what you propose is pedophilia and (still) illegal in all 50 states.)
So, how’s about you don’t be an asshole, make an apology and an edit and think next time.
