It seems innocent enough. With all the things you have on that to-do list, why would you feel like doing another thing? Ever. Have you heard of “eat the frog?” Where you do the task you least want to do first in the day? It’s great in theory, depending on the mindset behind it. What I find with busyaholics is our list gets so big there’s nothing but frogs on it, and soon you find yourself on procrastination highway, with no destination in sight.
That’s what constant overwhelm will do. It’s your mind’s way of saying, “give me a break.” Go do something fun.
