Procrastination – tip #2


Weirdly, and despite the fact that I am mysterious and unpredictable (just ask my family!), the list of things on my plate this week looks much like it did last week. I should be:

  1. Working on the draft of my next book.
  2. Critiquing another chapter for a friend and reading a completed manuscript for another friend.
  3. Buying and mailing a birthday present for my other nephew – sorry buddy, it’s going to be late!
  4. Doing my taxes – gah, still not done!
  5. Catching up on the latest episode of The Voice (no wait, that’s meant for another list!)

Instead, I went for a stroll in the sunshine with a friend and took lots of blurry photos of birds. This one I’m sharing is a red-winged blackbird. After a long stalemate, he agreed to let me take this one picture, so long as I hurried on my way afterwards.

Alright, alright, this week’s tip?

» Make a public commitment to your goals. Whether that’s a list of to-do’s on your blog/FB/Twitter, a note on your fridge door, or a sticky note on your computer monitor, write it down somewhere.

So tell me, did you try out Trello last week? What did you think? Or do you have another list-making app that’s better? Tell me, tell me.

    That’s an incredibly impressive picture of a red winged blackbird! And there is nothing better than finishing a ‘to do” then crossing it off the list! Good luck with your list!

    Great picture. Blurry can be “artistic”, and is definitely good for backgrounds. It really makes your centre of interest stand out.
    (I didn’t know you watched the Voice!)

      Thanks 🙂 I love the Voice. All those people with dreams who are taking a huge and public step to move forward. I think it’s a brave thing to do with so many people watching.

    Mysterious and unpredictable – absolutely! Nephew number 2 says “it doesn’t matter Aunty Jenny. Any time is a good time for a parcel”
