    count/effort

    Please make the following in bold clear for me.

    1. I usually count when doing a routine task.

    Is this saying just "count the numbers"?

    2. I felt that everything I did was an effort.

    Is this saying "everything I did was done with a lot of difficulty"?

    3. I could not get "going."

    Does the above mean "I could not start doing anything"?

    Thank you.

    Re: count/effort

    1 I presume it means count the number of times they perform the task, or the stages of the task.
    2/3 Yes
