Getting Underway

How do I get myself to do things?  I have a long-standing problem getting myself to do things that I think will be hard. Like writing up meeting notes, or doing my taxes, or making phone calls. Once I start doing these things, I find that they are not so hard. They may take some time, and I may need some more information, or to break them down into steps.

Then I feel bad about not doing these things, put them off even more, leave things until the last minute, feel rushed and not productive, although I sometimes do a good job at the last minute. Routine things that have to be done are fine, like feeding my cat, changing his water, and cleaning the litter box. I’ve never been able to train myself with rewards like food or games.

Any good suggestions? You are so good at this! Thank you.
