How to solve this dilemma? Let's start by following Brian Tracy's advice, from Eat That Frog!:
People with clear, written goals, accomplish far more in a shorter period of time than people without them could ever imagine.
Another great source of advice is James Clear. In one of his recent blogs, he outlined the principle of the Two Minute Rule. The basic tenets of this rule are: if you can do it in 2 minutes or less, get it done now, and anything else, get started now, because 2 minutes is enough to get past your inertia and leads, quite often to getting the task done or at least a substantial start.
Well, it sure beats sitting around and sighing about how much you have to do!
Until next time!
