Sounds like you've got a pretty solid set of skills already. There's big fastlane potential in the web dev/SAAS space. Analysis paralysis is a real thing, and honestly all it takes is for you to jump in head-first to something and see how it goes. As MJ puts it:

Act
Assess
Adjust
Repeat

Cheers and welcome!

Hey @cjsweeten101,

Welcome to the forum! I think it's fair to say that many people have been in the position you're in. It's a good thing that you have noticed that you're an action faker. However, when you say chronic action faker, to me it seems as if you've known this for quite some time. Not good. But guess what, that can be changed! You need to stop putting yourself down and realize that you have accomplished things that others haven't - physics degree (which isn't an easy subject btw) along with learning code. There are many people out there still "kicking it" on the sidewalk and will continue to do so. You, on the other hand, have taken a step forward. Now, take what you have accomplished and use it to create value in other peoples lives.

I'm relatively new to this forum, but I can tell you that there are so many threads that can seriously change your life (and your mindset). Personally, I would start off by reading @IceCreamKid " The Astonishing Secrets" Gold thread. It's a powerful gem!

Good luck with everything!
