I make lists. I try to get the things on my list done weekly. Sometimes, a project is so big that it will take several weeks to accomplish. When they get that big, I get overwhelmed. I try to start small and work my way to major.
If I have more than two things to do “first,” my brain tends to stall. I will sit and weigh my next step mentally, to decide where to start on what project.
I am trying to learn how to fix this. One of the ways I do this is to have smaller projects. For example, I manage to get the dishwasher loaded or laundry going while I figure out where to start the large project.
Is this a form of procrastination? I think so. I am being productive, but it’s not what I am supposed to be working on. I eventually get to what I need to do, but I have to work my way up to it.
I am great at procrastination. Who says you can’t be productive while doing it?
