Habituate the fear 

averie-woodard-205419.jpg

Anxiety is both a contagious and fearful gift. However, more emphasis gets placed on its negative influence rather than its impetus for greatness

By overcompensating for our fears, rehearsing actions that vitiate it, we preempt the tremors with the feeling of habit.

Making art is an anxiety reducer, as is doing the dishes, running, or putting away vinyl. Whatever gets us out of our heads and into a flow state brings relief.

“Habits are more important than fears.”

Seth Godin
