November 2007 Archives

People that have read my time management book often ask me if I have advice about procrastination. I generally don't.

Strata recently pointed me to an excellent audio workshop on the topic. It's a 2.5 hour MP3 that you listen to. There is a 10-page PDF that you need to print out first because the audio program pauses for you to fill out the blanks in the sheet. Don't try to just follow along viewing the PDF on the screen; having it on paper is worth it.
