It's not as bad as I am becoming used to it because I see the signs. I get working on my artistic projects, then abruptly stop because I see a squirrel, then I read about someone I know achieving something, even something as minute as headlining an open mic at a dive bar, and the "you're a lazy fuck that's doing nothing" starts entering my head.
Difference this time is that I know I'm slacking...because I'm trying to buy a house.
But I know the problem...I'm not being active and just being a couch potato.
Therefore I know the solution.
Writing this stuff down helps too.
