  •  procrastinate because we worry that our response won’t be good enough or
  •  simply don’t answer calls or texts that could be difficult or

Identifying where we secretly drag our feet against actions we know we need to take is the first step in releasing the obstacles that keep us from living the best, fullest and most authentic existence we can.
