I was having lunch with a longtime friend who is looking to shift her career. She's been toying with the idea of leaving her "day job" for a few years. See, she assumed that once she had a plan for her next career that leaving would be easier. In other words, the plan will magically snuff out the fear. She remarked to me that she thinks she now realizes that the fear will be there regardless. Yep. It's always there. With plans. Without plans. Some days more so than others. But it's there, simmering just below the surface. What if you just face the fear? I'm willing to bet that you would figure out what to do.
