Do you believe in recurring tasks?
Does anybody else have the same problem I have, of grasping the concept of recurring tasks? Other people laugh & think I'm joking when I try and tell them, but I wonder if it's a common difficulty for procrastinators?
What I mean is that when I do a job, I expect it to stay done, even though in the nature of it this is impossible. Even after 40 years of owning a motor vehicle, it still takes me by surprise that I keep needing to fill it up with fuel, and the same applies to doing the washing up, weeding the garden, getting a dental check-up, hoovering the living-room ... almost anything you have to keep doing.
Somehow when I've done one of these, my brain ticks it off as 'done' and deletes the instruction, so when suddenly my car grinds to a halt or there are no clean plates, I just can't understand it, because I know I've done that job. :-?
Is it just me?
