I take a great deal of satisfaction and pleasure from accomplishing small tasks.
Breaking a large task into small tasks is a large task.
Learning how to break a large task into small tasks is a large task.

breaking one small chunk at a time off of a large task is a small task
I overstate my case deliberately. You're right. My next question might be 'what about priorities?', but surely that's a smaller one. chop wood, carry water.

The one that gets me all the time is, when I break off that chunk, and I look at it, I'm all like, "this is too small to be important!" And nothing gets done! Aaugh!

That fits amazingly well with what I'm feeling at the moment.

That's one of the main reasons I write. I know some things. You know some things. We can split the difference.

Then there's the satisfaction you get from acomplishing large tasks.
Some days you're so satisfied you want to throw yourself a parade, but that's a lot of work, which certainly qualifies as a large task, and then you end up in this increasing spirial of task/reward that just goes on forever.
You're right. Stick with the small tasks.
