Good job on working to overcome your SA!

It works for me the same way too. If I say I am going to talk to someone in the hall a week from today, I usally procrastinate and don't do it; however, if I randomly see someone in the hall I want to talk to, I will usally do it. Making goals about overcoming anxiety ahead of time only seem to increase the anxiety.

It helps to know ahead of time what your goal is (i.e. I want to talk to more people in the hallways) but the only way to accomplish a goal is to actually do it. I have problems in getting bogged down in the planning stages of a goal; however, a lot of planning and no action usally tends to complicate things.

Again, great job for all the things you have accomplished so far!
