Procrastination

Procrastination

~Found while cleaning out my files, I don't even remember saving it. Instead of sitting in a hidden file, it shall sit here in my face to serve its purpose when needed.
Sometimes there is so much to do that we can't do it all, so we just get overwhelmed and we don't do anything. The secret to conquering your procrastination lies in five little steps I call STING.

S - Select one thing to do.
T - Time yourself for one hour, use a timer if that's what it takes.(Many times the job will only take 30 minutes, or they'll find they're not done with the task when the hour is up but they've made giant headway and can see the light at the end of the tunnel and live with less guilt.)
I - Ignore everything else.(Most procrastinators say, I'm going to get this done but first I'll check my e-mail, then...)
N - No breaks.
G - Give yourself a reward (such as watching TV guilt free).
