I've become aware of the fact that I rarely visualize the task I am avoiding when I procrastinate. It seems like there is a mental block where the mind rejects every thought related to the task, and turns the attention to something else. It feels like there is anxiety, fear, and other emotions which act to steer the mind away from thinking about doing the task. Does this kind of thing happen in other people too? I find that the most challenging part of starting a task I have been avoiding is to first think about doing it. If I can only visualize in my mind myself doing the activity then I will probably cure my procrastination. I've found that I have had the most success in doing activities when I have pictured in my mind doing the activity well before even doing it. The trouble is it sounds easy for others, but really it's incredibly difficult thing for me to accomplish. I feel that overcoming procrastination is over 90% mental, and the rest is physical effort (creating habit, scheduling, etc.).
