making phone calls

Do you have any tips on how to make important phone calls when you need to but it’s difficult? I always end up getting myself all panicked about them and sometimes consequently unable to make them, but I can’t not worry about them…

This might not work for everyone because it could lead to allowing more procrastination. But when I call someone and the answering machine picks up, I hang up immediately. Then I call back with the EXPECTATION that I’m leaving a message, and do so. Helps me feel prepared.
