I'm finally getting on with the final touches to the Spanish version of my children's anthology of stories about La Palma's amzing sky and history. It's as though I've learned to stop being a procrastinator.

Does that make me an anti-crastinator?

Can you teach your anit-crastinator techniques? I'd sign up for a class ... you know, eventually. Unless I got distracted and forgot.

I have one anti-crastinating technique. That really important thing that you've been putting off? Do a small chunk of it first thing, before you do anything else. Especially before email and Facebook.


Keep repeating every day you can until the job is done. ("Book a hire car" only takes one morning. "Edit a book" takes lots.)

But do the important thing first.

Breaking things down into smaller chunks and prioritising them seems to be good advice, Sheila. I like your idea of doing one thing before anything else. Will let you know how I get on. ;-)
