Make A Brew
Is what you're doing counterproductive, needless, and delaying?
Endlessly tidying up, fiddling with your phone, making your fourth cup of tea in an hour... unless you work in a teashop, you're probably procrastinating.
Trick yourself into action
1. Organise the 'thing' into a set of smaller tasks that are easier to do.
2. Guess at how long you think it should take to do each one.
3. Make a list of the mini-missions and check them off as you complete them. Mmm, satisfying.
Writing lists will help you figure out what you need to be doing to get you started, but remember to stop writing the list. If your list has gone onto three pages of A4 on both sides - it's probably not a useful list any more.
Hey, are you doodling? We can see you... now get on with it!
