This week I found myself doing every possible errand on the planet except sitting down at the computer to work on my web app, so of course I decided to procrastinate further by researching procrastination. I found one concept that stood out to me - procrastination due to having a fear of failure.

And I think this fear manifests itself in procrastination - if I never sit down to work on app, then I can never finish it, so I never have to face the reckoning of app showcase.
A few ways I'm trying to overcome this fear of failure:
