Cracking a mental block
I have been sitting in front of the computer for the last three days avoiding working on a presentation I have to give next week. It's been driving me nuts. Was just having a serious mental block towards the project itself. It includes a lot of marketing models that I find a have a hard time with, as they require some kind of brain functioning that just stops me in my tracks. So, last night (and this is cheesy) I took a post-it note, wrote "Just Do It!" and stuck it to my desk. I spent part of this morning procrastinating, but just started on it again now. I did have quite a bit of background work done, so it shouldn't be too hard. I find it very difficult to put a lot of work into projects here and only get mediocre grades back. The reward doesn't seem to equal the effort, and I'm not sure if it can just be put down to this being an entirely new subject area and way of researching than I'm used to or what. Anyhoo, back to...Tourism Australia.
