I’m sure I could think of a lot of other examples of where it is just easier to plunge in and do it instead of waiting until you are ready.
I’m not saying that you shouldn’t prepare. You should go to the library or use the Internet to do research on anything that you are interested in. This research will help you gain some confidence but there will probably be some lingering fear or doubt even after you have done your research.
I know that any new endeavor can be scary and intimidating. But you need to stop making excuses and letting fear or uncertainty hold you back.
Here’s a secret.
You can’t ever really be ready for anything. You just need to go out there and do it. Shoot for your dreams. Write your book. Start a family. Move out on your own. Become a teacher. Sing a song. Whatever it is you want to do, go after it and don’t make excuses.
You are ready.
