One of my favorite parts of Fly Lady is Anti-Procrastination Day. They have this regularly on Wednesdays. I figure this would be a good motivational tool for myself, and hopefully for others!
Goodness knows I can procrastinate with the best of them, lol.
The idea behind Anti-Procrastination Day is that you take one item that you have been putting off – and finally just sit down and Get It Done!
There is also a variation on this… The Anti-Procrastination Day Game. This is where you get a bunch of little cards or pieces of paper and write down one item that you’ve been putting off on each one. Then store these together (in a little box, a bag, an envelope, wherever). When Anti-Procrastination Day rolls around – every Wednesday – you reach in, randomly pick out a piece of paper and do whatever you had written down. At the very least (if it is a big project) just get started on it.
I’ve got some things that I’ve been putting off that are on my weekly to do list, so I’m going to stick with that for now. But on days when I’m somewhat caught up on my list for the week, I have a stash of old business cards (with my old address) that would have gone in the trash anyway. So on the back of these I list one item that I need to finally deal with (one day… lol). When I’m caught up on regular stuff, I’ll be reaching into my Anti-Procrastination Day Game stash.
But for today…
I WILL make a final decision on my personal web site design. I have the design finished and even developed into all of the pages (with “coming soon” for the content). There are a few minor tweaks that I’ve been flip-flopping on, though – design items that are updated via CSS, not the pages themselves (I love how that works, lol).
You know, I have no problem deciding on things for clients, but when it comes to designing for myself, I can be so insanely indecisive at times. I’m going to nip that in the bud today… at least for this particular design.
And for extra credit, I’m going to try to crank out a majority of the content today, too.
So, what have you been procrastinating on? Will you get it accomplished today?
