“Where fear is, happiness is not.” Seneca

“I am an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened.”—Mark Twain

What are you putting off out of fear? Usually, what we most fear doing is what we most need to do.

Fear setting by Tim Ferriss

Writing exercise

Conquering Fear = Defining Fear

  1. Define: Define your nightmare, the absolute worst that could happen if you did what you are considering.
  2. Prevent: What steps could you take to prevent the damage?
  3. Repair: What steps could you take to repair the damage or get things back on the upswing, even if temporarily?
  4. What are the outcomes or benefits, both temporary and permanent, of more probable scenarios? Now that you’ve defined the nightmare, what are the more probable or definite positive outcomes, whether internal (confidence, self-esteem, etc.) or external? What would the impact of these more likely outcomes be on a scale of 1–10?
  5. What is it costing you—financially, emotionally, and physically—to postpone action? Don’t only evaluate the potential downside of action. It is equally important to measure the atrocious cost of inaction.
  6. Weigh the pros v cons
