Trying not to feel guilty about things unfinished. Books that I haven’t picked up in weeks. Blogs I haven’t written. Browser tabs, PDFs, and publications I haven’t gone through. Work tasks rescheduled ad infinitum. I know that having that basal level of anxiety leads me to procrastinate the prioritized in favor of the mundane. And so the way forward is clear: there is only one things to do, the task in front of you. The top item on the list. If it mounts a wall, the obstacle is the way. That which prevents you from doing your task is your task.
Close eyes. Deep breath. Focus.
