Doing Scary Things

These are a few of the scariest things
I’ve become more aware of how I procrastinate on doing things just because I’m afraid. Why? Usually I delay doing things because I don’t totally¬†foresee¬†the outcome. I’m afraid of making the wrong choice. I’m not sure which way is the “right” way to do it.

So I put off doing anything. I ignore that something needs to be decided or acted on. I’ll wait until another day.

The Antidote
I’ve found that I have to remind myself of the saying I’ve heard “If something is worth doing, it’s worth doing poorly.” Now, I know I can do almost anything poorly. So I give myself permission to do it poorly and I do it. I usually end up with a pretty good result. The other thing I remember is that “If I’m not happy with the decision I’ve made, next time I can make a different decision.”

How have you handled those things that you would rather not face?
