You know the feeling when you’re looking at your list of things to do and just don’t want to start with this one, big task? Try to set a timer and commit to at least spend five minutes on it. Make a deal with yourself that if you are completely stuck after that, it’s okay to move on to another task.

You’ll see that getting started is the most difficult part. After you wrote your first words, created your first wireframe or started running for five minutes, the rest will follow.
