Procrastination is like a cancer slowly eating you up from the inside. You know it’s something you have to do, it lingers, becomes dramatic, and then the monster developers you in fear.
If you really can’t do it, don’t. Just get it off your plate to someone who can do it for you.
The problem is holding onto it and bulldogging your way into action. It hasn’t worked up until now. You been stalling and avoiding and hiding from others.
Instead of accumulating frequent flyer points for this and starting your own “Frequent Procrastinator” program, just get rid of it. Ask someone else to take it on.
You will feel relief and it will get done.
And getting it done was what you want to have happen, right?
“But I should be able to do it!”
But you can’t, so just get rid of it.
