fear of failure.

I’m often accused of being a procrastinator. Like it’s a bad thing! I feel like my “procrastination” stems from a desire for perfectionism. I don’t want to start things willy-nilly. I want to plan and prepare, think, think again….think some more…make sure I have the best tools and most well-thought-out idea and I’m doing it at the right time in the best possible forum, BLAH BLAH BLAH. Sometimes The Thing never happens cuz I don’t *have* the best tools or the idea hasn’t been thought through well enough yet. 
Or, you know, I’m scared. Scared of screwing up, being wrong, looking foolish, failing.
Fear of failure. Powerful stuff. 
Procrastinator sounds better.
