One common concern I have gotten from guys who are working to have more power and choice in their interactions with women is that they don’t think they are “ready” to meet women yet.

“Most smart people want to make a BIG difference. But they don’t think they are ready to take that plunge to live their dream. They don’t want to raise the stakes (by quitting their job, investing in something, joining a movement) yet until they are ready. They keep discovering that something else needs to happen before they raise the stakes. The more they wait, the higher their current obligations making it more complicated to raise the stakes.
