2. Sometimes even writing a list of things to do and remember is a bit much.

11. In fact, projects are always much more fun when you're starting them.

Even though you really do want to be the kind of person who gets things done.

13. Even that chocolate bunny has been sitting in the cupboard since Easter.

Just finish him. R.I.P.

14. But great things take time to finish, so don't worry.

Some of the greatest things actually take centuries. So you're fine.
