I’ve had an idea about an expansion for this website that I’ve been working on, mulling over, and telling everyone I could in order to solicit feedback for the past 3 years. But when the time came to start actually working on it I balked and it took me several days before I could even open the email from the web developer that outlined the project timeline and costs.
One day, while that email was sitting unopened in my inbox, I walked past a neighbor’s house and for the first time noticed a small sign with this written on it and it made me pause:
I realized in that moment, that my inaction was being driven by a fear that this project would fail. Even though I’ve done everything I possibly can to prepare, there will never be 100% certainty. But what I do know is that if I never try then I’ll never know how it could have turned out.
And so with that, I went home – took a deep breath – and signed the contract.
