Stuck on the method

Lately I've noticed an incredible internal resistance towards making first steps towards anything. And it's not really that I'm afraid of taking that step, it's more like there are just so MANY different steps out of that spot, I refuse to move. If I were some sort of expert on game theory like John Nash I could probably come up with some smart explanation for why this is. Something like, "All risks being equal, no risk will be taken." Trusting my gut usually works, but unfortunately my gut has to battle my brain.

Another reason is the fact I often get stuck on that first step - is the method right? Does it set the right mood? This first step will inevitably be the basis for all steps after it and must be executed with absolute precision!!! Even though I know this is pretty illogical, it is a pretty hard mental gap to overcome at times.
