In the film, We Bought A Zoo, Thomas Haden Church’s character, Duncan, tells his younger brother, You only have to be courageous for twenty seconds.
This advice propels Matt Damon’s character, Benjamin, forward to meeting the woman who becomes his wife and later in the film to buy a zoo.
Maybe we aren’t going to meet a future spouse today or buy a big piece of property inhabited by wild animals but what else could happen if we just said, YES, for twenty seconds?
