Hi, Mae, I’m glad the Inner Saboteur exercise worked well for you. Later in the course, you’ll be invited to use that same approach to deal with other parts of yourself as well. Even now, you can use it when you find yourself getting stuck. Just put that stuck part of you in the seat opposite you.

You brought up an important point about delay. When I discuss the course with folks, they often tell me examples of what they perceive as procrastinating but which is really delay. Hopefully, this understanding can help you feel better about your strategic decisions and help you focus on your real procrastination, that is, delay that leaves you worse off.

So, in knowing how to begin, do you mean figuring out where in your project to begin and how to approach it, or do you mean how to make yourself begin? They require two different approaches. Let me know.
