Remember when you were a kid and you didn’t have a single fear in the world? You’d race down a dirt hill on your held-together-by-duct-tape-and-gum BMX and jump a dirt ramp, come to a crash landing after 15 feet, scrape your knees because you were wearing shorts and chip a tooth (or several) all while enjoying the crap out of yourself and repeatedly pushing your rig back up the hill for another go.
Fast-forward 20 or 30 years and you get sweaty palms just thinking of switching your email client.
The only real remedy to this irrational unease is – as corny as it sounds – just doing it. If you’re still a beginner at doing scary things, imagine the worst-case scenario and try to assess if you would be able to deal with it.
Losing a couple bucks or having to revert your intricate blog setup to a backup, should things go wrong, aren’t real problems and in no way, shape or form justify any kind of fear. Feeling uncomfortable about something might actually be a hint at an opportunity to grow.
Don’t miss it. You’ll most likely regret it.
