What is the difference between inertia, procrastination, and avoiding?
To me, inertia is when I can’t get going on anything. Usually it is because I am feeling overwhelmed, too many things to do, what I need to do seems too hard, or I just can’t prioritize and decide where to start.
The strategies for this are to write down everything there is to do, break everything into small steps, do the hard part first. Also to be careful about picking what I really need to do-sometimes I can just cross some things of the list when I think about it. They turn out to not be really necessary. What a relief!
More coming on this. It’s all in the book, Your Life Can be better, coming in 2011. I am on the 7th draft, and think I just found an editor to help me.
