Do you put off large or intimidating projects till later, like I do?
You'd really like to get to it, but you keep getting the feeling that it would be better to wait till after ____. (I'm sure you can fill in the blank.)

Its all to do with your lizard brain trying to keep you safe. The lizard is constantly on the look-out for possible threats. When you picture something important in your life that you want to change / create / develop, your lizard goes on a spree of identifying every potential threat, every little detail that could possibly derail your project.
Result: You feel like it won’t be safe to start, till you know how to deal with Every. Little. Detail.
