03.31.16Random Note: I Got Stuff Done Today

I’ve probably gotten this advice a hundred times: do the thing you are most avoiding right away when you get to work.
Today I did it. I made myself do it.
It wasn’t just that I was so happy to get it done. I was amazed at how easy it really was. I mean, why was I stalling?
Good lesson there but the rest of the day drove the point home. Riding that tide I just got to stuff. All day. No dilly-dally.
Gonna try it again tomorrow.
