Think of something on your to-do list that has been there for a while. You don’t look forward to tackle it. It feels like a burden. You have other several things that you’d rather be doing instead of it. This thing gives you a bit of anxiety. You don’t know how long it’s going to take you to finish it. Today was a sunny day, and you were sitting on a curb eating two scoops of nice icecream after lunch, and this thing from your to-do list popped up in your mind and spoiled the entire moment. You’d even go for a grueling workout, or perhaps tidy up your apartment, or finally meditate because you’ve been busy since a few weeks and you we’ve been putting off mindfulness for later. You would do anything and everything except that dreaded thing on your list.
Well, congrats, because obviously that’s the number one thing you ought to be doing now.
