More Time Management 101


The NOT-TO-DO LIST for PROCRASTINATORS (like me):

1. Do not spend 2 hours in the morning drinking coffee and reading the newspaper
2. Do not check your e-mail
3. Do not decide to read all your favorite blogs
4. Do not update your Netflix Que
5. Do not start yet another project (finish the 5 you have going already)
6. Do not decide to make a gourmet lunch
7. Do not read the 2 magazines that just arrived in the mail
8. Do not call your best friend just to chat
9. Do not go through all the papers on your desk
10. Do not decide to catch up on all the laundry
11. Do not decide to bake a cake (or pie, or cookies)
12. Do not pick an argument with your loved one over something trivial
13. Do not decide to re-organize you studio space

Just get to work! preferably on one of the projects which you need to finish soon...
