The Path Of Least Resistance
We avoid tasks due to the problematic anxiety making us choose the easy path, in line with the principle of least effort.

We realize that these seemingly large difficulties were just smoke and mirrors, having no real substance, and we simply need to move ahead and focus on the learning.
