Avoiding The Unknown Print
Written by Mike Noel   
Monday, 11 June 2007
I have discovered something about myself and I strongly suspect that others are afflicted with the same problem. Of course I won't go so far as to say "everyone" has this issue (but I still think most do). I avoid things that are unknown. In other words, I try to minimize the number of unknown things in my life, not increase them. This plays itself out in many ways but one in particular is the way I approach doing tasks.
When my life gets busy, which is more often than not, I start to make to do lists to make sure things don't fall through the cracks. Inevitably some of the things on the list will have a large degree of unknownness to them. I avoid those tasks as long as I can. I put them off to the back burner. I do all the others first.
Why? I don't know. You might think I'm hoping the task goes away. That's true sometimes. But other times I'm probably hoping that more info will come to light and the unknownness in the task will go away. I don't mind doing the work when I know what it is I need to do. I have a harder time attacking a problem when I don't know what that problem is.
So now that I'm aware of this maybe I'll stop avoiding the issues. Well, I can always hope.
