And... watch Cooking Channel. Or research summaries and reviews of movies I have no intention of ever watching (am I the only one who does that?). Or fill up a shopping cart at an online boutique and then close the window.
When I have a huge, massive project ahead of me, getting started is the hardest thing! Focusing on and completing projects isn't that tough, but it's that first step that seems like so much work.
The thing that works best for me is to do a "strategy page." I write out what I'm planning to do, maybe a few details about it, and then count that as the first step in finishing the project. Then my brain thinks, "Oh, yay! We've started! Let's get on with it" and the rest of me can follow in relief.
How about you brilliant readers? How do you get inspired to begin a massive project?
