It feels like the more that I work on what needs to get done, the more opportunities appear and things work out. Work has a momentum. And it's satisfying to feel and see the results of one's work.
When I put off what I know I need to do, I feel resistance to the momentum of work. I feel stuck. I feel hesitant and resistant. But as soon as I get the gears moving, it's easier to get more gears moving, and pretty soon things are happening and I'm constantly happily surprised.
