Tell me if you've ever had this problem.
You have a big list of things to do. Like a good little person, you arrange it in order from most important to least important, with the highest priority item on top. Then you stare at that daunting task and just can't quite bring yourself to do it. But you don't want to cheat on your extremely important, properly prioritized to-do list by skipping to the mostly irrelevant stuff at the bottom of the list. So you grit your teeth and force yourself to do that big 'ol scary task.
