local thrift stores are closed due to COVID. Where would I put all those clothes I plan to give away? They might as well stay where they are.

And don't get me started on all the reasons I can't organize the photos, not to mention umpteen carousels of slides from the 70s.

One weekend, he and his wife decided to trade chores. I'm not sure I remember all the particulars, but the gist is that Emily left the apartment to go do things like get the oil changed in the car and pick up some items at the hardware store while Bob stayed home to complete the chores on his list. His first task was to write checks to pay their bills.
A couple of hours later, Emily completed everything on her list and returned home to find Bob just setting down to start his first task. When she questioned him about why he hadn't completed anything, he explained that he had to get ready to pay the bills. For Bob that meant finding his lucky socks and hat, trying out different locations in the apartment to spread out the stack of bills and the checkbook, and deciding on the best ink pen for the job.
Sound familiar? Bob fell into the trap of needing everything perfectly organized before he started a simple task. A typical procrastination ploy.
Are you a procrastinator? If so, what kinds of things keep you from starting a project?
While you think that through, I'm fixin' to think about starting to draft that book.
