When was the last time you did something for the first time?
I wanted to make shoes. I wanted to make and sell leather sneakers.
I knew nothing about leather. I googled leather-working and found a class 30 minutes away.
I woke up early that Saturday morning and went to class.
People walked into class with their leather purses, wallets, bags and other projects they were working on. Tools in hand.
I had nothing. I felt awkward. I felt clueless.
I told them I was a beginner and had no idea what I was doing.
They were immediately super helpful and friendly.
It ended up being a great experience.
I ended up realizing, in actuality I had no interest in leather-working, but I didn’t know until I tried.
You don’t know what may be your next thing unless your willing to try.
I haven’t done anything “for the first time” in a while….. I’m due.
