“Do one thing every day that scares you”, is one of my favourite quotes. If we don’t try to go beyond our boundaries, we’ll never know for sure where they actually are.
Though, in my life, it turns out that I don’t do every day one thing that scares me. I somehow save the day-to-day scare and then, every once in a while, I get afraid at myself.
- In 2002, I went to Grenoble. My knowledge of French at this time would be best described as basic.
- In 2006 – going to South Africa. When sitting in the plane, I had this nagging feeling that I had no clue what I was actually up to. Turns out the feeling was right – one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences I ever made.
- 2010 – taking the decision of going back to school by starting a part-time MBA. And honestly, I’m scared.
Two things maybe to get out of this: 1) This startling sensation of uncertainty and having no real idea about what I’m just getting myself into; to do entirely without is boring.
2) If this blog goes a little bit quiet in the next few months, it’s because I’m writing somewhere else about my current scary endeavour. It won’t be given up however.
