What challenges are you facing? Where are you stuck?
Are you running on fumes because life is overwhelming? Too many projects at the front of your desk and way too many occupying psychic space in your head that have no traction?
The clutter in your head magnifies the clutter on your to do list. When you are carrying baggage whether it is top of mind or not, it inhibits your ability to accomplish what is in front of you. So as well as eating frogs first thing in the morning to get rid of the most unappealing task first, you probably need to pick off a ghost that is rumbling around in that huge brain of yours.
