Have you ever found it difficult to begin that new project? Or run into difficulties completing a hard task? What’s stopping you? Is it procrastination or fear? Perfection?
You can put it off, but it lingers there, niggling away like a virus. It’s frustrating.
Look to change your state. Consider changing your immediate environment. Shut the laptop and use pen and paper. Take a walk. Move desks. Sit with different people. Get a fresh perspective. Refresh.
You can sit there and punish yourself OR do absolutely anything, however small that edges you forwards. Create some momentum. Take action. You’ll feel better for it.
