Tasks that seem onerous, or not that exciting can be done n one of two ways…

Slowly, “small-ly”, bit by by bit, in small, daily pieces.

Or, all at once, in one big hit, getting it out of the way.

The problem with slowly, is, it’s always there, calling, at the back of your mind, nagging you to pay attention.

Until it’s finished.

The problem with hitting it all at once is that, until you do, it’s still nagging.

And, if you leave it too long, the looming deadline forces you do it all at once in a really painful way.

Maybe, the key is just to start right now, with the intention of getting it out of the way.

See what happens, and then do the same thing tomorrow.
