Some interesting comments and observations - thanks.
I'm also guilty of sitting in front of this screen all day and sometimes achieving very little work. That needs to stop. I think that discipline - and structure - in this are crucial, and that's what I've lost somewhere down the line. The challenge is to find ways to reintroduce or reinvent them.
Setting daily goals might be a way for me: lay out at the start of the day what I expect to have achieved by the end of it.
As kaled observed, mentally trying to avoid the work is possibly what's at the heart of it. But, I can't put these specific things off indefinitely. There are deadlines to meet and all I'm doing is creating a backlog of stuff that needs doing in a dramatically decreasing time frame.
Onwards and upwards... :-)
