Since when did we benefit from wrapping our lives in anchors and chains? The effort required to start something new, really, is minuscule.
The determination and perserverance required to see it through to a hard-won success or failure is so much greater than the effort it takes to start something.
Is it the worrying about being able to commit that stops you from starting? Your perceived lack of competency, time or distractions? Excuses for others; guilt for yourself: a death spiral.
A recipe for success? Do it. Fail or succeed, learn, and move on.
“Daddy, what does regret mean?
Well son, the funny thing about regret is, it’s better to regret something you have done, than to regret something you haven’t done.” — Famous Band, name ending in Surfers
