Or to start a business. Propose your girlfriend. Or star in that play.
Anything that is risky – is risky for a reason. Either there is financial investment required, or not easy to back out or it feels huge tension.
The truth is that you will always feel like this. No matter how much you try to secure.
But that doesn’t mean – you should just jump in. However there is a trick – plan and the jump when you hit the threshold.
For example, if you want to start a business. Only start when you have enough savings to sustain the loss for 1 year. Which also gives you time to see if it works.
Quitting a job should be done when you have backing from family members. Or you have a new job. Or you have 1 year of savings to try new things and then go back to job, if things don’t work out.
Marriage is a big decision. You always have a 50 percent chance of succeeding. First be optimistic.
Be truthful and remember it takes both of you to make it work. And jump in when you both have agreed to whatever your conditions are.
It’s okay to wait.. but remember even if marriage doesn’t work out, make the journey worthwhile. Like you should with most things in life.
