Procrastination Website

So, from everyone's comments it seems like lots of us have procrastination issues. I liked the point some of you made about not wanting your kids to pick up the procrastination habit. Mine are still young enough that I haven't seen it in them yet, but I certainly don't want them to end up learning that from me.

Janel was asking if my professor has a website and actually he does. The link to Dr. Tim Pychyl's procrastination website is: http://http-server.carleton.ca/~tpychyl/ He has a lot of great references to books and research articles about procrastination, so check it out.

Have a great day everyone!

Just so you know, I am boycotting this post, and Janel's, and Jess's because I just can't admit my problem yet :)

Depending when you read this... I have a free zap procrastination class coming up, and also a procrastination intensive for anyone who wants to get focused and take action on the stuff that makes a difference. You can get more info at www.StartingNowCoaching.com

You will also find an article with some tips to break through procrastiantion on the Ezine page and the Time Mangement Tips page of the website.

I think what has helped me personally the most was to STOP multi-tasking and set boundaries (phone calls). Then put 100% FOCUS on one task at a time, set a time limit, and aim for completion. Of course, it's not always easy when you have young children the age of Julie's but it helps! And the kids LOVE when they get 100% focus.

Hope this helps!
