Me: What should I do? Should I do some more work? Should I reply to this message? Should I keep reading that story? Should I do the clerical stuff for my work? What should I do?
Me: Ok stop, what you should do is eat dinner, you’re not going to be able to think until you eat. What do you want for dinner?
Me: Oh right, I wanted penne pasta, because it sounds good and I need to use up the marinara sauce.
Me: Right. Now, what do you need to do to make dinner? You need to get up, get the pot– it’s already clean– put water on to boil…
(This is a really positive outcome because I only stayed in my hungry indecisive state for like 20 minutes, and then I snapped out of it all at once, and now I’m eating.)
