Execupundit recommends slaying one small dragon each day:
You know you need to confront them but other things somehow always seem to arise.
How do you know it is a small dragon? There are two simple criteria: you’ve been putting off the task and you will feel much better when it is finished.
That’s sound advice. Small dragons can be big stressors. They’re like all those zombie processes running on an old PC. Day by day they drain your resources and slow you down.
And remember, if left alone, small dragons get bigger.
