Distinguishing excitement from anxiety

Back at home from a full day of being out and about talking to people about exciting projects in the works, and my silly caveman brain is unsettling me. A certain wise man warned me at the very beginning (and repeatedly ever since) that dealing with uncertainty would be the toughest aspect of my career change. I think I’ve actually made giant strides in this regard because it isn’t my future that worries me now: it’s the discomfort of heading out into unfamiliar territory in the current phase of my program development. This is a brief reminder to myself that it’s a good thing that things seem to be moving too fast all of a sudden. I should also remember the lesson from Lindsay’s latest post.
