I know plenty of folks that never get anything done. It is never about NOT having something to do or accomplish, it is about having so much to do that they simply freeze in place and are basically overwhelmed by having so much to do.
Let's just call it the "Writer's Block of Life." I think that we are all guilty of allowing things to pile up and then we simply screech to a halt when time rolls around where there is a lull in day-to-day life and we are faced with the time to tackle those tasks.
Yes, I do this all the damned time, too.
Here's how I solve this malady/rotting pus-filled tumor in my life, when I finally get around to it.
1. I make a list. Yes, I know all the things that I need to do, but keeping things in my head is an ineffective way to actually address those problems. IT. JUST. IS.
2. I refine my list into a priority list. Most important stuff goes at the top. The least important is the thing at the bottom.
3. I tackle ONE THING AT A TIME. The most important comes first.
4. If I reach a point where I need more information or a particular object to complete that task, I make the request to the person that has the information or in the case of an object or tool, I start another list of things that I need to pick up while I am out.
5. I move on to the next item and so on until I finish my list.
This is the way that I finish things. It works for me every single time, too.
