Take a minute and make a mental list of tasks you’re prone to avoiding (or are avoiding right now!). They might include returning a phone call, doing household chores, or completing a project you started long ago.
Now imagine that task is completed. While imagining, take note of the feelings you’re experiencing: satisfaction, relief, peace of mind, joy, pride?
Notice there is no feeling of regret.
Ever notice that it is often the things we don’t want to initially do that end up being the most satisfying upon completion?
