One of my ongoing goals for my life is to escape the cubicle farm. For the past two years, I’ve wanted to turn my hobbies into a career. I have so many notes on ideas and resources that can help me meet this goal.
Ideas and resources are great, but I needed more than that to make my goal of self-employment happen. I refused to spend another year planning for something, yet getting no closer to my goals.
There’s only so much information you can collect. There’s only so much planning you can do before you just have to stop doing and just do. I stopped compiling ideas and resources. I stopped worrying about the “what ifs” and I got started.
I won’t lie, starting is the hardest step, but it’s necessary. You can’t do what makes you happy if you’re always planning. At some point, you have to make a move. Don’t worry about making mistakes. Mistakes are a part of life. It’s okay if you don’t know everything in the beginning. Nobody does. You learn as you go.
