Default Re: Procrastination, agh

I came across a book called the Anxiety Toolkit that I believe will be helpful with my procrastination issues. The author talks about having a fight/flight/freeze response to anxiety inducing situations. I really identified with that. I freeze when it comes to the big stuff - I can't make myself think about starting X business, even though I've talked about it for years, or I can't get started on Y project, even though it's really important to me. I also fly by filling up my time with a lot of distracting activities. Some of these seem productive or good on the surface, but they are not moving me towards my goals.
