An unimportant project – “I’ll just get all these papers alphabetized first.” Even a good ADD strategy – “First I’m gonna make a long list of all the things I need to do.” Or we can get so involved in getting ready to do the project -“Now let me make sure that I have all the tools and that they’re all in working order.” and we never get around to the project.
I have a card labelled “Avoiding” and I put those things on there. Sometimes I look at it and go ahead and do one of the things, or better, sometimes while I’m writing something down I say “What the heck!’ and just go ahead and do it instead. That’s good.
