Stop lying to yourself
This is something I need to revisit again and again.
I put something on my todo list and lie to myself that it is important enough that I’ll do it today. But in the back of my mind, deep down in the recesses of my psyche, I know I’m not going to do it. I don’t really want to do it.
This wastes mental energy as I revisit the need to complete the task. It also builds up a sense of guilt as undone tasks roll over day after day.
How much easier life would be if I was honest about what is really important and what I’m really going to commit to do. Then I could work with a clear mind and give those things I actually plan to do the focus they need.
