There's a job I’ve been putting off for months.
I have copied it from list to list.
I have ‘prioritised’ other jobs above it.
I have tried to convince myself it didn’t actually need to get done.
But yesterday I ran out of time and excuses, and I finally got started.
And the complicated bit of the job, the bit I had been dreading ?
It took me all of 10 minutes to work out.
Five decades, and I still need to remind myself that the best way to get started on a difficult task is to just get started….
