Do I hate bookkeeping because I’m no good at it, or am I no good at it because I hate it? Or because I have ADD? (can you think of any other word in English with kk in it?)
Maybe it makes it worse to tell myself that I hate it? (self talk, language). Will try to stop doing that; it can’t help.
Learned today that the dreaded procrastinated avoided task takes less than an hour and is pretty easy! – if I have kept up the month before. It’s the procrastination and getting behind that makes it such a chore.
Strategies: 1. quit saying “I hate it.”
2. Set a goal of doing one account a day; I see that once I get started on one, it’s usually easy to get a bunch done.
3. Make sure I’m up to date at the end of each month,; don’t get behind.
this addresses issues of attitude, self talk, procrastination, and the dog poop principle -it’s easier to take care of if you don’t let it pile up.
