Hey all, I make ToDo lists for several reasons and generally find them helpful. However I also often find myself paralyzed by internally demanding that I be 100% sure of the "best" or "optimal" task to do first. My OCD and anxiety go through the roof and incapacitate me into inaction and... I get nothing done :/ I've wracked my brain for any reasons as to why I'm terrified of not doing the optimal task first but I just can't put my finger on it. I have severe TRD so it could be that I tell myself that I "have" to do the most important/best tasks whilst I'm feeling well enough to be able to do them, and that disaster would ensue if I didn't. But I just don't know TBH. Anyone else get this task-prioritization OCD & anxiety? Any insights, techniques or tips? I tried randomly ordering the tasks today which helped somewhat, for example. Best to all, Pete P.s. due to the TRD I'm crap at replying but I will eventually reply!
