Do these words by JRR Tolkien also resonate with you?  “It is the job that is never started that takes the longest to finish.”

Yes there are things I just never get round to finishing because I never get round to starting them!  Yet I expect them to get finished and I am annoyed when they don’t.  Crazy but true.   This can include things like cleaning out my office, or replying to mail received an embarrassingly long time ago.  Or at a deeper level, like the perpetual postponement to prioritise my time and energy around what I know to be the passionate core of my life, as well as the reluctance to attend to “inner work” that has been biding for my full attention forever.
