At least in the short term.
Simply because whenever you do something new, something you've never done before then you're going to encounter roadblocks.
A lot of roadblocks...
No matter what.
No matter how much research you do.
No matter how much you think you know.
There will always be dozens of things popping up you didn't think of before.
Things you didn't even know existed.
And what usually happens when you realize that it's going to take you ten days instead of just two days is that you're going to get upset.
Or maybe even depressed.
Or what not.
Maybe you're even thinking about giving up.
That it was maybe too much.
That you can't handle it anymore.
And then your moral goes down.
And with it your creativity.
And pretty much everything else.
And when I say you, I'm basically talking about myself.
And that's the problem with most people.
They listen to all of these gurus out there who talk about getting out of your comfort zone, about doing new things and all of this stuff.
But they never really talk about how hard it is to do new things.
To get out of your comfort zone.
No one ever talks about the roadblocks.
And it's just hard to do new things, to get out of your comfort zone and at the same time get over all of these roadblocks when you have a gazillon other more important things to do.
Like feeding a family.
Or paying the mortgage.
Or what not.
Most people are not ready for the roadblocks.
Simply because no one told them about the road blocks.
And even if people do, experiencing them yourself is a whole different story.
So peopple just give up when they encounter too many roadblocks.
When they feel like they can't handle all of the roadblocks anymore.
The things they feel like they didn't sign up or.
When the truth is that you signed up for a bunch of things you didn't even know about.
That's what doing new things, what getting out of your comfort zone is all about.
That's what makes it so hard.
So most people give up at the first, second or maybe even third roadblock.
And they will never finish anything.
And when you never finish anything, then you'll never learn anything.
And instead of becoming more creative you just become more and more upset with yourself.
So what can you do?
I don't know.
But here's what I do...
I expect the best and prepare for the worst...
