It’s amazing. I can confidently make a list of important tasks that I need to accomplish, and I can purpose to get them done. But when it comes time to actually complete them, I can find so many other things to do instead.

For example, last night I wrote a list of ten important things that I’ve been putting off: making a dentist appointment, getting a tune-up for my truck, and so on. Now that it’s time for me to accomplish only two of those ten tasks, I find myself checking for e-mail and updating this diary instead of standing up, walking over to my desk, and just getting those things done.

Which I’m going to do now.
