When trying to battle procrastination it can be helpful to remember the ice cream principle.
If we are at home making ourselves a sundae or a nice piece of pie a la mode, when we are done we always put the ice cream away before enjoying our treat. Without fail we take the time to do this one chore because if we don’t things get worse. The ice cream melts and makes a bigger mess to clean up. We lose what ice cream we have left to a puddle on the flour.
We have to realize that everything is ice cream. It all must be dealt with in a timely fashion before it becomes a bigger mess. We cannot leave the things we don’t want to do just sitting on the counter and go eat our desert.
