This is a note to self.
Failing is scary. Making mistakes is devastating. And the knowledge that failures are important doesn’t do much in eliminating those feelings.
Truth: it is the thought of failing that’s torturous. Much more than the failure itself.
Failure is an event. You will feel bad after that happened and you might hate yourself for it. But you will move on with time.
On the other hand, thought is a never ending cycle. When you are thinking of making mistakes, you usually stuck in limbo of fear longer than you want it to be. You can’t end it until you decide that it is a waste of time. Or until someone else made the decision that change your situation.
Try stuff. Fail fast. Learn fast. Back to try stuff.
Most importantly, have fun in the process.
