The Ravens

They lurk at the back of your mind. They circle in front of you. They hop across your thoughts during meetings and caw whenever you try to place your attention elsewhere.

Try as you might, the tasks that you know you should do but don't want to do are not flying away.

Put these ravens at the top of your "To Do" list and don't leave work today until at least one of them has been permanently dispatched.

I always think of those as procrastidons - ancient elephants in the living room.

I really like that term!
