So when we talk about going for it, there is fear.

Real, raw, and sometimes paralyzing fear.

The Creative Exponent | Do It Anyway

We both have experienced this.

We have started things (MANY things) before it was time, before we were “good” at them, and before we could shake the feeling we might fall on our faces.  And while we may still be afraid to try new things, or create anew again, we have coined this phrase here.

Do it Anyway.

We’ll fall sometimes, I’m sure.  We’ll get scraped up, or get a bad review, and we may even have to shut a business down.  But we know what it’s like on the other side of getting started or creating something new.  And sometimes it’s magic.  We cannot un-know this reality and how incredible it feels when things do go in the right direction.

So the phrase begs us, as it begs you….do it anyway.
