1. If you have time to do everything on your list, you have time to do the important but horribly painful stuff first. Doing all the easy and fun part at the beginning because you are a procrastinator is self-sabotage, because then you’re doing all the shitty jobs at the end when you’re out of energy and time. And you feel haunted all day because the bad stuff is still on the list.
(I said I LEARNED this, as in, the truth of it has now coalesced in my brain. I didn’t say I manage to remember and act accordingly every day.)
2. Salads don’t have to be mostly composed of lettuce. You can put an egg and a smidge of cheese and five different non-lettuce vegetables in a salad, and it’s still better for you than eating yet another bowl of cereal.
