I am not usually one to procrastinate. I like to take the bull by the horns and just get things done. But more and more lately, I am putting things into piles and some of those piles are collecting a great amount of proverbial dust.
The piles of tasks that I am pushing to the side are things nobody can see because they are in my head. But I seem to have a found a wonderful corner of my mind that has a giant rug and all of those things I want to be doing have been swept under that giant Persian beauty!
It’s unlike me to be this unmotivated. I’m not going to be in that deadline-induced panic but I am going to be disappointed if I don’t lift up that rug soon and deal with what is hiding under there! I guess I’m going to have to buy some steel-toed boots and give myself a good, swift kick in the ass. (another of my mom’s great sayings)
What do you do to get yourself back in the saddle?
I can relate, Susan. In fact, I’ve been mulling over a post about this very topic. Like you, I don’t normally procrastinate. I’m blaming it on the approaching cold weather….but that’s a lame excuse. 🙂
I have both figurative and literal piles… I wish I knew the motivator(s)!
I usually start with the things I hate doing and then it just gets easier from there 😉
Sounds like a plan! 🙂
