Just fucking do it (JFDI)

Just fucking do it.

We spend so much time trying to find the shortcut or the easy way to do something.

We trick and cajole ourselves to get things done - all so that we don't have to deal with the sting.

We avoid things and put them off. We can deal with them another day. Too painful today. Or I'll do it when I work out the best strategy or when less people are watching.

It turns out, however, that a lot of the time the best strategy is to just fucking do it. Right now.

No delay. No pussyfooting around it. No stroking it gently. JFDI.

Sometimes we just need to brute force our way through it. Yes, it'll probably be messy, but we can tidy it up on the (much easier) second pass.

What have you been putting off that you just fucking need to do?
