What’s the thing you’re most scared to do? What would it take to get you to do it?

Right now, the thing that I’m most scared to do that I also want to do is take a leave from work and focus on building up SANA Stationery & Gifts. I want to make a real go of it and see if I can’t get it to go somewhere. Alas, I’m not much of a risk-taker so the prospect of doing something like this is absolutely terrifying to me.

To do this, I’d need a good financial safety net. Basically, I need to save a fair bit of money if I’m going to be able to afford such an attempt. For more than the last little while, I’ve been thinking about how I can put enough money away. I’d need to start soon if I want to make this happen sooner rather than later.

In some ways, I think that my fear is an indication of how much I care about doing it. I wouldn’t have anything to be afraid of if I were able to turn away from the idea. Instead, I think about it, slowly building up a plan. Eventually, I’ll have to courage to set forth on that plan.
