Avoidance makes it harder

I’m always shocked and enraged when I put off a task (that I can’t escape) and it ends up taking me a trivial amount of time to complete.

I get angry because 1) suffering through the procrastination (it’s always in the back of my mind) is so much worse than the completion of the task) and 2) this never changes.

I wish I had a cute, optimistic closer for this post but the worst part of it is that I’ll never move on to bigger and better problems that need solving until I overcome the fundamental ones.
