I’m the same…at work l’m a work machine. Why? Not so many distractions. So, to give me a chance at organizing my place, remove the distractive forces: I turn off the TV and face it toward the wall. The couch I do the same thing and cover it with a sheet. Then I get to work.
I want to stop and watch TV and sit on my sofa so bad, but I’m distracted by the organizing of my house. And as I see progress I don’t want stop until I’m finished.
As a reward I watch TV, with popcorn on my sofa.
