So, whenever I have a new idea I have to force myself to get as scared as humanly possible before actually executing the plan.
I have both the fear of losing and the fear of missing out. These things conflict with one another so much that it makes no sense.
On one end, I’m ready to get moving and am open to all opportunities. On the other, I start to look at all of the things that can go wrong.
That fear will always be there. When you move by yourself, I think it’s important to pay attention to all of the possibilities.
Yes, this does mean that you’ll come into contact with more stress than you wanted initially. Yes, it does mean that you’ll have to think a bit more. The outcome of that stress is amazing though.
*that’s beside the point though.
I wait to jump to allow myself to go through the cycle.
The “wait” comes into play when my paranoid “self” is worrying about the things that can happen. I have to pause to give my brain time to sift through the nonsense.
*take note of the fact that your being unprepared for an opportunity and the opportunity not being willing to wait for a moment typically means that something is wrong. You probably shouldn’t partake in it. I’ve learned that.
I jump when my body tells me it’s time to jump. When I’ve gone through the possibilities and feel as if I can handle them I make my move. If not, I wait a bit more.
This is my process. I’m horribly conflicted in this way but, it works for me.
It’s how I process information and take action.
How do you take action? What’s your process?
