Mae – I enjoyed the inner saboteur exercise and plan on using it to bring tasks to completion. I recognized the difference between delay and procrastination in the exercises and I have not been clarifying my tasks accordingly. I need to recognize some of what I have been calling procrastination was appropriate delay.
To me the most challenging aspect of a large project is knowing how to begin. I have written several “instructions” for Navy Medicine – generally a two year or more accomplishment. The process involves writing or rewriting a document and getting the involvement and approval of all stakeholders. Writing new guidance based on Congressional mandates was less arduous. Rewriting proved to be difficult for me due to the input of others and the amount of rewriting based on additional ideas.
