Trying v Doing: The difference is fear of the consequences, that is fear of success or failure for what ever reasons. One is more like making the attempt the other “feeling the fear and doing it anyway”.
Trying v Feeling: If you cannot get the feeling then trying will do. It is better to be clicking anything than not at all. If you cannot access the feeling and or memory you could create a fictional event that might happen to you that would produce the same or similar emotion, and CT that fictional event.
