What are the tricks you use to get yourself to do something you don’t want to do? Really, I want to know; I could use a few extra in my toolbox. For instance, when I think about writing this blog once a week forever and ever until the end of time, it kinda makes my brain hurt. What if I run out of things to say?! What if it’s a rainy, grey day and I just want to stay in bed forever and ever instead of writing a blog entry?! So my brain and I had a little discussion about it this morning and agreed that it’s a lot less overwhelming to just write a blog entry today and not worry about forever and ever. Of course, I still plan to write a blog entry every Monday, but I kept that to myself during out little discussion so as to keep my brain from being overwhelmed.
(I don’t know the answer to the philosophical question about what is the difference between “me” and “my brain”, but I know there was definitely a dialogue going on in there this morning, and resolution seems to have been reached. I’m pretty sure my brain is not “me”.)
So I’m actually really curious what you do when you stall out on a project that *has* to be done. I could use all the help I can get on this rainy, grey day 🙂
