Nano tip #4: Avoid procrastination. It feeds on itself.
Example 1: When it’s 4:45, I will return to my writing. Oops, it’s 4:47. OK, now I have to wait ’til 5:00. Oops, how did it get to be 5:07? Now I have to wait ’til 5:10.
Example 2: I’ll read one blog. Just one. But wait – I have to comment on it. Oh, look at that! Now I have to comment on someone else’s comment. And wouldn’t you know? That reminds me of a blog entry I would like to write. It won’t take long. (Only 20 minutes!)
Example 3: Purposely looking for something else that needs doing. Like posting a (new) favorite picture. Like the following …
It is titled “Unconditional Surrender.”
How romantic is this?
