Why are new things so scary?


Here we are on the precipice of something really scary and new and exciting. I'm not really sure how any of this will go, but I'm pretty interested in finding out just how much work I have ahead of me. 

First, a story:

My name is Jay and this is my Think Tank. 

When I was in the fourth grade my teacher told me I was going to be the President of the United States. When I was in the fourth grade I told my teacher I wanted to work at a think tank, instead. 

Even recently, I've dreamed of hanging out a shingle from a small office, with a desk and a comfortable chair inside and just having people bring me their problems and questions and musings and then I would help them work through towards a solution, or an answer, or maybe just more & deeper musings. (I do understand that's not how think tanks actually work, but my mental picture is, not surprisingly, more attractive to me than the reality.)

So, that's not a thing that can happen really, huh?

But then I thought more about it and realized that the brick and mortar aspect was the thing that was holding me back from realizing that dream. 

Hence, Jay's Think Tank and the idea of getting a little more agile than just hanging out a shingle, but still wanting to help people out with whatever they can throw on my desk. And, via my Patreon, maybe help support myself and my family a little bit along the way. 

Thank you for stopping by.
