If I'm procrastinating on work that is clearly laid out for me by me, I make a list of its chunks and tackle the smaller chunks a few at a time. If I'm avoiding the desk because I'm not sure of the direction to take, I give myself the time it seems to take (Sometimes it's a lot!) and wait until the answers or right direction solidify in my thoughts.

“Physicists say we are made of stardust. Intergalactic debris and far-flung atoms, shards of carbon nanomatter rounded up by gravity to circle the sun. As atoms pass through an eternal revolving door of possible form, energy and mass dance in fluid relationship. We are stardust, we are man, we are thought. We are story.”
Glenda Burgess, The Geography of Love: A Memoir
