Currently I’m investigating the thought that I’m “avoiding”.

Can you bring some clarity as to what “avoiding” means?
For example, I have a large “to do” list. Any time I do one thing, in a sense I’m avoiding doing another thing.
How does one prioritize and understand when it’s just the ego saying “You should be doing something else” or when it’s actually our inner intelligence or intuition telling us that we should be doing something else? I can’t seem to tell the difference.
