My answer is a big ol' yes, especially since working on a blog is my "anything" to avoid finishing preparing an information packet for a project. I enjoy the subject matter and look forward to synergizing with my peers and planning an event. YET...I can't "get my head in the game" to focus.
I've checked Facebook a few times, my email, and even played a game or three of Soda Crush as I drink my coffee. What is a girl to do? I need to know...am I alone in this conundrum? I don't think so, hence the reason I'm putting it out there for a blog discussion.
Yesterday was Ash Wednesday, forty days before Easter, and a time when some "give up" something. This can be a food, bad habit, or thing. Others use this time to take up a new habit. Then there are those of us who focus on both, eliminating something pulling our attention away from God while adding something to help us reconnect or be a better man or woman.
What does Lent have to do with avoiding a task? I don't know, maybe nothing, but on the other hand, what if I gave up procrastination for Lent and focused on only thinking and speaking positive and encouraging thoughts and words? Hmm...would this solve my avoidance in completing a task? Probably not, since it's worked for me the past forty years, BUT...it might minimize the frustration of having to get things done or taking on more than I have time to complete. Then again, they might not be related at all but you just avoided something on your to-do-list to read this crazy and disorganized blog. So we are equally guilty, aren't we?
If you have mastered the art of completing one task before moving on to the next, will you share your strategies and success below in a comment?
