Buffering, scared, lazy?

I’m new to Scholars and trying to get over my buffering. I’m not sure if it’s fear that is holding me back or if I am just lazy and not wanting to do the work. I scroll social media telling myself it is research, but I end up scrolling through the news feed. I start to consume information, telling myself I’m learning but still not doing the work. Now I find myself spending hours looking at all the courses in Scholars and not getting anything done. How can I use the model to get over the buffering?
