How do normal people do it?  
When you are in the situation where there is something you would like to do, but you're not sure you can do it with the quality that the situation warrents, what do you do? Do it anyway and wait for someone to tell you you're not good enough to be doing it? Not do it anyway? Ask for an opinion? Something else?

EDIT: I feel like it seems like I'm shooting down's people's comments. I'm trying to understand how things are different, not trying to shoot them down.

I will usually hunt down someone a trust who I think knows more than me about that subject and ask for help. I try to learn as much as I can about what I'm trying to do, first, and maybe give it a good attempt, but I like being taught. Unfortunately, I'm also very sensitive to being criticized, so there's a fine line between finding someone patient and kind to sit with me and be helpful and NOT do it for me, and sitting and working on it myself.
