Why don't we look at learning as a fun thing in life? Think of how you like to get a new tech gadget. It's fun to start using a new gadget because it makes our lives easier in some way. Think of learning a new skill the same way; it's a new gadget for your work life. Don't put the pressure of needing to get an outcome from this skill. While you are learning, you will be inspired to figure out how to put it to use.
I know that I'll always be learning something new as an entrepreneur and in my career, so I don't fear it. When I owned a radiology facility, I had to learn about the healthcare industry and things like how to get a facility approved for different insurances. It could've been daunting, but I already had the belief that I'll always figure things out. That's been one of the keys to my successes because I don't care about taking a risk now.
Also, last year I took some online classes on digital marketing for my coaching business. It's helpful, and I am working on putting what I learned into effect. I make MANY mistakes along the way, but who cares because I am doing something new. That's all that matters.
Believe a new skill will take you forward without caring about how or the final destination.
Do something new, learn something new, and build your know-how.
