Hello from London England

Dear All,


Like many I found this site whilst sitting in my home office and trying to get moving on a project.  It's a relief to find other who share and understand my frustration with myself. From the comments and articles, it seems that you are all accomplished and intelligent people, with the big'P' being a barrier to success and fulfilment. I sometimes see myself crashing over a cliff top whilst holding a perfectly good parachute that I can't be bothered to open.

 A couple of thoughts:

I never have a P problem when helping other people, it's doing things for myself / my job where I have to get over barriers.

Also - I find comitting to a deadline / delivery / meeting seems to do the trick most of the time, though there is always the long build up of discomfort leading up to action. I wish I could 'just get on with it'

Finally- taxes - I gave up long ago and found an accountant but evenr then, getting them all data takes a huge effort.


Thanks for a great site 





Hi Dreamer

Welcome to PA. :-)

It helps me if i commit to a deadline, too, but i also feel the long build up of discomfort. I think thats because I know I'm STILL going to put things off until right before the deadline. But I'm working on that.

I also have an easier time doing things for other people, but when it comes to doing something for myself (homework, exercise, house work, etc), I have a harder time.

Keep coming back, we're glad you're here. :-)
