Okay - I just DID it!!...
Hi, I just joined here after seeing the forum for the first time Sunday night. After reading some of the posts, I woke up Monday morning, made a list of a few pretty urgent things that needed doing, and had them done by that afternoon.
I got to a point where I was almost robotic and emotionless about *starting* the tasks which I found helpful. I am self employed and work from home so had suffered from putting things off for some time! I am a perfectionist, so my problem has been not wanting to start something in fear that I may do an average job of it...the irony being that the longer I muck about, the worse the outcome anyway!
I have had the best 2 days so far and spend less time thinking and more time doing - that's the key for me anyway. The moment I start over analyzing the 'best' way to tackle something, is the moment alarm bells go off in my head and I commit to just doing anything related to that task at hand. I used to justify that planning to the 'n-th'degree in my head for hours, days etc was 'working'.....it's not.
Yesterday I removed my wireless internet connection from my work PC in my studio - now I can ONLY work in my home-office and not surf the web! Okay, better go, it's 7am Wednesday here, so eggs on toast time, then a new day!
