"Anticipatory anxiety is usually a much more noxious condition than the actual situation being anticipated." How true. I was just thinking about this yesterday. My boss was at a class and asked me to run a meeting for me. I told myself I was way too nervous to run the meeting. When it came time for the actual meeting, it wasn't bad at all. In fact, I got the whole room to laugh (with me, not at me!) and there were plenty of good questions afterwards.
