Where do I start? I was once told that if I couldn’t think of anything to write, to write about not being able to write. So, I’ll go with that thought and write about not being able to start.
I am lacking motivation, oomph, whatever you want to call it these days. I am feeling very overwhelmed. More and more I’m expected to do or deal with less and less to do the doing or dealing with. So, I’m left looking at this or that, wondering where to start and, in some cases, not being able to make myself start.
No matter what I do, there is more to do. Before I’m done with project number one, projects two through ten are before me. So, I don’t start. When there is an overwhelming amount of things to do, nothing gets done. I can’t make myself start on any of them.
What about you? How do you make yourself start when you are overwhelmed?
