You know it’s going to hurt. That’s why you don’t want to do it.

Actually, you are not lazy. You are procrastinating because that task on your list is making you uncomfortable.

What task are you delaying at the moment?

Is it really going to hurt that much?

Be honest with yourself. What is it about the task that is bothering you?

What are the benefits of getting it done?

Balance the discomfort against the benefits. Which wins?

Here are some tips on how to stop procrastinating.

My best wishes, Paul
