We like the idea of feeling ready. Here’s why we shouldn’t:
- There is no such thing as feeling ready. Whenever we do finally feel ready, we feel anxious, don’t we? That’s because “ready” means we’ve passed the time to act.
- There is only feeling unready, and feeling behind. And if we wait to feel ready, we miss the former entirely and instead land dead-center in the latter.
We can act from the former or from the latter–both contain fear. There’s no escaping that.
So which is it to be for you?
