Focusing on the unimportant

When you find yourself focusing on low-value, unimportant activities … and you know full well you have much more important things to do … ask yourself this question:

What am I avoiding and why?

If you are going to stick your head in the sand and avoid important things anyhow, you might as well use the time to “look beneath the surface of things” and try to determine what is really going on. Don’t look for complex answers. Look for easy answers such as: I am unclear about what I am supposed to be doing or, I am not sure how to get started.

You don’t usually have to get too far beneath the surface of things to find the source of your avoidance.
