If you’re holding back and looking for a reason why, and that reason is replaced by another reason, then… you might be stalling.~ Seth Godin from, https://seths.blog/2020/11/are-you-stalling/
I’m sure I must have been stalling at some point in my life, but ain’t nobody got time for that now. Sometimes my stalling manifested as frenetic deck-chair arranging when I was actually stalling on the rudder improvement project. Sometimes it manifested as deep, pensive stretches of prodigious cogitation. Now I’m all like: Manifest destiny!
