This is probably my biggest lesson of the year and I will be taking more risk in the new decade because of this lesson.
The lesson basically is that 1. Everything is Figureoutable; 2. Believe that you can and will figure things out. 3. Run with the fact that you can/will figure things out eventually.
When I had the idea for Picsible, there was a certain feature I was to code that I was scared I couldn’t code. This feature was more like the entire Picsible itself as it was super important. I procrastinated starting Picsible because of this fear, but for some reason decided to push past this fear and get started on it. And as soon as I began coding, I figured it was not even difficult at all and even though this feature took quite a lot of my time to code, I had grossly overestimated its complexity. You just imagine I didn’t push past this fear in the first place.
In the year 2020, I am making sure I am trying things before making any conclusion — whether or not I have everything figured out. I will be taking bigger steps and chasing my dreams even though I am still puzzled about how everything will turn out. I will become pals with uncertainty and face it head on. And I will not just “try on the surface” and immediately conclude something can’t work. I will try to the latter and won’t conclude till I exhaust all options.
I will be trusting my ability to figure things out and run with it all through the year. You should too!
