Weighing the cat
There is an article on the bbc website about procrastination including a short story about someone who was found to be avoiding starting something by literally weighing the cat. Apparently he didn't feel he could proceed without this vital bit of data. Therefore, the family now referred to procrastination as "weighing the cat". And that is what I am doing at the moment....I have a large pile of job descriptions to evaluate but I am finding it rather difficult to start. However, I did read an excellent piece of advice some years ago when in this situation - if you are finding it difficult to start something just start it and the rest is easy. So I may be about to finish weighing the cat and just starting work.
