Argh… Can. Not. Do. It…
Most of the time I’m pretty focused on getting things done. Most of the time. But right now, I’m finding myself infinitely distracted.
First, there’s all the “grey” things I could be doing, work that’s justifiably related to things that matter. Social media to build connections for my writing. Research on the best small business checking account. Setting up a PO box for my business. Reading just one more book full of insights on how I can be a better writer, or blogger, or be more effective with the tools I use.
But then there is other stuff that has no justification: social media for time wasters. An incredible new iOS game (“Bastion.” Have you seen it? It’s beautiful and haunting, like you’re walking through a painting with a soul singer narrating your path.) One more episode of “The Daily Show.”
I can do all these things. Heck, I can do them all at once. But I’m finding enormous pressure and resistance around the one thing I really want to be doing right now. Taking the final steps on publishing this eBook. It’s so close. And yet I can so easily do a hundred other things than this. Why?
