When you prime your body to exercise it's like you are warming up the engines of your car.
If you go full throttle and go it will cause long term damage - you need the time for the engine to get warmed up.
When we do creative tasks we often see the mountain ahead, think of excuses not to do it - rationalize our laziness.
If we just commit to 5 minutes of focused work - something we can all do, the rest follows, you build momentum, you warm-up your engines, start the wheels turning
Don't think about the task, think of warming up for it - your body will take care of the rest...
