If I were to list my major weakness, it would probably be procrastination.
I guess I have a tendency to put off or delay work because I set impossibly high standards. Knowing that the task simply cannot be done, I then attempt to ignore the work or put if off indefinitely. They I justify my inability to act by self-accusation - 'I'm a lazy bum' only locks me deeper into my pattern of procrastination.
The only answer is really just to force myself by act of will and put on blinders concerning other possible projects and take two baby steps. If baby steps don't get me started, then I'll try again tomorrow.
