    I often run into a paralysis before a step that I'm afraid of. Usually when I just go ahead, it works out OK. But overcoming my anxiety takes some effort.
    The craftsmanship of risk is what Elia Bizzarri calls the process of working with handtools. Sometimes I wait a long time before tackling the next step or the next project.
    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

    A friend of mine went to a costume party as Godot once. She never made it...
    Cheers,

    look for the little victories and grow from there. failure means you are trying and learning. never failing means you arent trying hard enough
