Difficulty in Motivation

Some things are hard to do.  Some things are easy to do.

But all things are impossible to do if you can't even get yourself motivated to start them.

The task stretches, long and arduous, before you, and it's all you can do to stay there looking at it instead of
running away like a coward.

Most of the time you run away.

You have a difficult time getting things done.  Getting things started.  You get frustrated and burnt out and wish it would just end.  All of it.  You try to escape it, but you can only run for so long before you bump into something.

And you've wasted more energy in running than you would have spent in facing it.

Yet the logic factor in your brain does not seem to connect to the motivation factor.  The task is still there, still scary.

And it frightens you.

But it's important to face your fears.  Even if you have to inch towards them, one step at a time.

And so you set a timer, for only a few minutes, and tell yourself you will work on the task for that long, and once the time has expired, you are done.

It's a good plan, but it's still difficult to start.

But it needs to get done.
