Youth Workers - book for Young People by Peers

Good blog about 2 teenagers publishing a book for other teenagers

Five types of hard things
Like a lot of the best books and resources aimed at youth, it’s actually contains an important message for everyone.  Their summary of the ‘five types of hard things’ that they urge fellow teenagers to do are relevant for us all:
  1. Things which are outside your comfort zone
  2. Things which go beyond what is expected or required
  3. Things that are too big to accomplish alone
  4. Things which don’t earn an immediate payoff
  5. Things which challenge the cultural norm
