Whenever I need to do something that scares me, I tell myself, “It doesn’t need to be perfect; you just have to do it”. It works every time. I guess we underestimate the power of having done something. We assume that the only things worth doing are the perfect things, but nothing starts out perfect or ever even reaches that unrealistic standard. Yet, I often forget that, and so I have to remind myself.
When I begin something, I am essentially testing the idea using the experiment of reality. In return, reality gifts me with data that can help me take the next step. I’ll take the next step, and the next step, and the next step, and before I know it, I already created something. But I really have to fight the lethargy, the fears, and all the other reasons that block out that shiny and bright beginning.
