The Task You Put Off - You Know the One

There it is.  The task that has been staring me in the face for several weeks now.  Reclast  is an IV treatment for osteoporosis that I am supposed to have once a year. That entry in my planner means  I have to call Vanderbilt and remind them that they have not called me to set up an appointment for July.  I've put it off because I've been dreading trying to coordinate it on the same day as another appointment (my doctor is 3 hours away from where I live).  It is going to be a long day and I'm dreading the day itself!

So everyday I am looking at this in my planner, moving it week to week until I actually do it.  That makes no sense at all!  The longer I wait, the bigger the chance is I can't make the appointment for the same day.  Do you have tasks like this?  Any tips?

For me, I finally decided I must do it and then tell someone else to make myself accountable.  Like now, I'm going to take care of this task today and then I am going to edit this post and tell you that I did it!  Keep me accountable!!

  1. I always have one or two tasks that I really don't want to do. So, I put them off and try to avoid them. However, avoiding is only prolonging the day that the task will have to be completed. I have tried to force myself to at least do one of the tasks that I really don't want to once a week to make sure that I am completing them in a timely fashion.
