This is an invitation not a barrier.
Image a kid saying, “I want to ride a bike (swim, skate, dance, game) but I don’t know how,” and then giving up.
Yes, some kids do this, but a lot more adults do too. Except their statement goes something like this:
“I want to eat home cooked meals, but I don’t know how.”
“I want to budget, but I don’t know how.”
“I want to relax more, but I don’t know how.”
“I want to read a balance sheet, write a novel, learn to code, etc…but I don’t know how.”
The solution is easy. When you don’t know something, you learn how.
It will take time, it can be frustrating, but you will improve. And the best part is age doesn’t matter. You can learn at any age.
You can learn finances.
You can learn how to code.
You can learn the legalities of copyright.
You can learn how to read better, draw, cook, write…
This could be the year you finally discover how!
So if you find yourself saying, “I want X but I don’t know how…” You’ve uncovered both the problem and the solution.
Go and learn something.
It’s more fun than you think.
(and helps make excuses scatter)
