Yesterday afternoon I was sitting in my office, behind a desk the was/is overflowing with papers and projects and stuff that needs doing, and I couldn’t make myself do any of it.

I had this gnawing feeling in my belly and my brain kept telling me to get moving, to get started, but I sat still, fingers clicking on the mouse, looking at random things on the internet.


I hate when I get like this. I know that I am doing it because I have so much to do and I am afraid of starting and of failing. I have two massive and extremely important projects to work on this fall (one that will literally determine if I have a job next fall. Yay for grant funded programs) and I can’t seem to start on them.

I need to just do one thing. Just start with one thing (I am channeling my spouse here, as this is the advice he always gives me).
