I am most often self-conscious of my ideas. It’s many a time that I believe I have a great one, but when I share it with my friends it seems to fall apart and I feel an idiot, but I continue to appreciate my idea.
I highly appreciate the nothing to lose attitude. I believe going all in is one of the most powerful things you can do, and surely rewarding. You may be shocked, however, at how much you did in fact have to lose, but you may also shocked to notice how little you had to lose. Like much art, it deals with perspective.
