Using Your Time Effectively

Minimizing Procrastination

If you're not working on a project, even though it's urgent and/or important, you should ask “why?”

Do you think the work will be unpleasant?  does the project seem overwhelming, impossible for you to finish or do well?  are you having any doubts about whether you should do it?
