I meant that practicing by doing more of the easy thing might be a good way to work up to doing any of the hard thing.

There's also asking a friend explicitly if they mind if you interrupt them, if you have people you're comfortable enough with to do that. That could be another way to practice first in a low-stakes interaction.
