Strategies for getting things done, especially when those things are deeply important, pretty scary, and you have no idea how to start.

I'm suffering from imposter syndrome/procrastination paralysis or something. I have a creative project I'd really like to get off the ground, but I'm plagued by self-doubt and have therefore been putting it off. When I do finally get down to work I last maybe 20 minutes before bouncing away to do something, anything else.
Tell me your tips and tricks for tackling big, frightening projects. I'd especially like to hear from parents of young children (mine are 5 months and 3 years). When there's ALWAYS something else that needs your attention, it's very easy to avoid the big task.
