#WednesdayWisdom: Unprocrastinating


It’s a gray day, and there’s been a bit of snow. Not enough for a postcard December moment, but a bit, undulating patches of white over faded green and brown. The sky looks like more is to come.

We’ll see.

There are the days when it’s so difficult to get going, to face the computer screen, that maddening, unhelpful cursor, and just get on with it. So I’m sharing one of my favorite tricks.

You may already know I’m a fan of the timer, setting it, seeing how far I get, tracking the word count, or just using the timer to get momentum, but that doesn’t always do it. It’s a good one, though.

But for those times when you can’t cajole yourself into setting that timer for ten minutes, I give myself two choices: work on whatever project it may be or do something else that has to get done but I want to do even less.

I won’t lie, there are times I opt for the project I want to do less, but the plus side is you get it done. So really, it’s a win-win.

I’m going to go unprocrastinate myself, and I hope you have a productive Wednesday, whatever that may mean.
