5 years ago I didn’t know how to use a computer. I would sit at the keyboard and try to get the mouse to go where I wanted it to and repeat over and over to myself “Don’t panic, don’t panic”.
Now, I love my computer. I couldn’t run my business without it. I wouldn’t have the daily outlet to show my work and get feedback without it. It helps drive my creativity.
I still get nervous at the thought of starting something new or using new technology, but now know that I just have to work through the anxiety, and eventually what I was afraid of becomes almost mundane.
