S..s..s..something from the comments

While I resolve a few technical difficulties, please amuse yourselves trading Discardian tips in the comments.

Should you have no tips, go watch Ze Frank's The Show or poke around on Garbage Scout (now with the San Francisco bay area!)

  1. Okay, here is my tip, and I will admit I have learned it from elsewhere. When you have a big task you have been putting off because it is just so overwhelming to think about, set a timer, any timer, and commit yourself to doing just 15 minutes of this task. When the timer goes off, you stop. You will probably be surprised how much you got done on that task within the 15 minutes! And even if it was just a little bit, you’ve at least done the hardest part: starting!

  2. More on the postponed task issue. I’ll often find that I have a task that just seems to stay on my list. What I’ve learned is that if I redefine the task as just the first part of the task, it’s far more likely to get done. So, redefining “Clean Up the Basement” to “Box up the old toys in the basement” gets me off my duff and into the room. And if I find myself feeling energetic, I might just end up knocking out the whole thing.
