As much as I enjoy learning something new, I still feel resistance to learning it. I worry that it will be too difficult to learn, but after some procrastination I go ahead and learn it. That’s when I find out that learning it was not as bad as I thought it would be. Many times, it is not bad at all.
The real problem is what I tell myself about learning, and not the learning itself. I make the learning worse in my head. No matter how many times my worrying turns out to be pointless, I will still worry pointlessly when it comes to learning outside my comfort zone. I must be human or something.
