jane can't figure out how to move forward
I have major work to do for this report. I can’t afford to stare at the numbers and keep checking facebook to see if anyone’s replying to my messages.
I worked really hard and was very focused all day yesterday, but I’m dragging my heels, now that I have the report to start writing.
I have to go to class tonight, too.
So, to try to beat this procrastination, I am going to swear off checking on the survey until after class. I am going to give myself 40 minutes to skim my 3 articles before class, then I’ll get dressed and motor out of here.
Present-tense, positive language!
I AM READING MY ARTICLES. I am focused and interested in these articles.
