Overcoming Procrastination

by Ramona Creel is a good quick look at how to organize yourself to be more productive. Sample section:


    Start with a written plan of action to avoid getting distracted
    Keep your plan simple and straightforward
    Start with the one thing you must get done today to feel productive
    Should be a manageable item you can complete in 10-15 minutes
    Break the day up into a number of “action sessions” for other tasks
    Balance the time spent planning with time spent creating or doing
    Avoid over-planning — another method of procrastination
    Before ending your day, spend 10 minutes reviewing your progress
    Take time to plan your actions for the next day
