Taking a risk, learning a skill, moving, upgrading your abilities, starting a new job/position is like an itchy wool sweater. You know it will keep you warm but it’s not comfortable. One part of you knows the change is going to be worth it while the other half is scared. There are many unknowns and tasks and processes of every size to learn. It is overwhelming.
