Productivity or Procrastination? Tackling Those College Apps

10 Oct

Use the Columbus Day Weekend to further your goals!

Deadline dates loom.  Some friends completed their essays during the summer. Others have just about finished theirs.  What about YOU?

Do you know where your time goes?

  • Are you just too social?
  • Do you spend excessive amounts of time on Facebook or texting your friends?
  • Do you REALLY care what others tweet about?
  • Worse, does one or more of your friendships sap your energy or challenge your self-esteem and keep you thinking, thinking, thinking?
  • What about the opposite sex?  Do you spend too much time thinking about getting, or FORgetting, him or her?

 Your problem? P-R-O-C-R-A-S-T-I-N-A-T-I-O-N!!!

 Now, what are you going to do about it? 

MY PLAN (for me)

  1. Take an Internet sabbatical.  Resolve not to check personal e-mail.
  2. Turn off the cell phone. Anyone who needs to talk to me has my home telephone number.
  3. Identify one evening and one day for pure relaxation.
  4. Find a hidden corner in the public library.  Productivity increases to the tenth power!
  5. Just get started.  It feels soooooo good!

I don’t mind if you copy my plan, but please let me know what happens.
