I just made a sign on a post-it note and taped it to the bottom of my monitor.

PROCRASTINATING MAKES ME FEEL:

- sluggish
- tired
- guilty
- anxious
- fraudulent
- hunted
- ashamed
- trapped


I've dug myself into a pretty deep procrastination/avoidance hole here at work. Today, for the first time in a while, I'm feeling as if I may be able to dig myself out. I'm trying a new strategy that involves a blank sheet of paper numbered 1 to 5. Making a to-do list is intensely anxiety-provoking because of the sheer weight of things to be done. This is a list that asks me to fill it up with things that are finished. That seems to be working better.

I'm trying not to think about what a drop in the bucket each set of five things is. Step by step.
