At the moment, I need to do a huge amount of button business stuff, most of it fairly routine. (Two conventions on the same weekend, so I need two adequately filled sets of button trays.) And I've got resellers who wouldn't at all mind having at least 750 buttons among them--before my two conventions.
I've made significant progress, but I've still got a lot to do, and I think a lot of what makes it hard unless I've got someone to chat on the phone with is that I just keep thinking about how much more I need/want to get done. Focusing on the next thing isn't interesting enough because making the next button isn't that interesting.
So....when you've got a big project like that, how do you occupy your mind?
I'm especially interested in hearing from people who don't have huge problems with that sort of project. When I say "don't have huge problems", I don't mean "no procrastination", I mean procrastination kept under enough control that the work gets done anyway.
