There are a million reasons why you shouldn’t take on a big, scary (but potentially rewarding) opportunity. It might be stressful, ill-timed, or hard to navigate. It might not work out or be the right path for you. The list goes on and on.

It seems small, but by coming up with a response, you’ll find the clarity you need to make the decision that’s right for you. And potentially do something really, really amazing.
