The anxiety of learning

Being successful depends on always learning and growing in anything that we do. This is as true for individuals as it is for organizations. If we don't learn, someone else will come who is better, faster, smarter, and we don't survive.

Learning itself, though, produces anxiety. When we are learning, we have to move away from the familiar. When we are learning, we might make mistakes, and we might look foolish.

What is scarier for you at this moment, the anxiety of survival or the anxiety of learning?

The answer to that question determines your next step.
