I just spend two days procrastinating because the only next logical step for my grant application was to ask for internal and external reviews. I get asked to review work all the time. I know it is a given in academia and that people generally do it if they can. No one likes being pressed into service when we all have our own work to do, but we all do it. But it took everything I had to compose the emails and then hit send.
At least its done. Now the worst case scenario is they say no and I'll have to find other people to ask.*
*Actually the worst case scenario is they say yes but don't do it and then I have to nag them.
