It’s seductive to wait and plan rather than step off the cliff. Every day I spend analyzing, planning, preparing reduces my risk, right?
But the learning I can get through action is FAR more reliable than the imagining and assuming I am limited to do when I’m not testing my ideas in real life.
It doesn’t have to be a big step. I probably shouldn’t take a big step. But taking one small step and learning from it both moves my dream forward and reduces my real risks (through learning).

What’s your next step? Maybe your plan is good enough. Maybe you know enough to take the next small step.
