Problems with Starting?

In learning how to 'do' research or inquiry, we seem to be forever starting something different. And many of us have problems starting...Starting the confirmation paper?... Starting a literature review?....Starting data collecting and gathering?  Starting analysis? Starting interpretation? Starting the conclusion?

Are you having trouble starting?  Whatever you're trying to start... come to the meeting and tell others about it.  You'll be surprised how much the act of telling the difficulty actually helps you start...
