Don't Say The 'e' Word

Eddie at Practically Efficient:

So when someone, even early in life, gets an itch to do something that doesn’t conform to social stereotypes, it’s met with a paralyzing mental dissonance. If America was a polytheist society, Risk would surely play a Satanic role.

An entrepreneurial curiosity can grab people and shake them up in a really uncomfortable way. You’re torn between what could be and what should be. Eddie talks about how social pressures shape your outlook on what should is.

This fear and lack of comfort will be ever present in your pursuits of doing new things or doing things differently than everyone else, so you have two options: don’t do anything cool, or get over that fear of risk.
