This Might Not Work (And That’s Okay)

At some level, this might not work” is at the heart of all important projects, of everything new and worth doing. And it can paralyze us into inaction, into watering down our art and into failing to ship… This might not work” is either a curse, something that you labor under, or it’s a blessing, a chance to fly and do work you never thought possible. - Seth Godin

This quote from Seth resonates. Truly, at the heart of every important project I worked on, I said to myself that this might not work”. This sentiment has stopped me from pursuing projects, opportunities, and ideas in the past.

To this day, I still hear that inner voice in my head. But instead, it says, this might not work (and that’s okay)”. That last part makes all the difference.
