Procrastination Killer – Rule of Three — 26 Comments

  1. Ahhh …. the good ole procrastination that kicks me in the butt every time. It creates stress and crazy unhealthy things to happen but it’s also one of those things that drive me too. Sad to say šŸ™ These are great points to think about for sure though šŸ™‚

  2. I’m horrible at procrastinating! This is good advice! Thanks!

  3. I like this rule of three but definitely the applicable in my status right now are the blogging and the parenting/home.

  4. Wow love your 3 blogging cores . last 2 weeks my procrastination levels are to high for my liking. I need to focus thanks!

  5. Great post and I bust out all of them things daily, except the finding new customers. That is so much work and I like blogging more than finding customers lol Although I could use a few more hosting clients.

  6. I’m not much of a procrastinator. I just wish there was more time in a day to tackle my projects!

  7. I can probably manage to do that. Three isn’t too daunting of a number.

  8. It’s amazing how many places the rule of three works! Art, photography, procrastination…I’m keeping my eyes peeled for it now!

  9. Love your 3 simple lists. I think we try to complicate things too much

  10. I need to apply the law of 3 to my own life. Especially to my work life, which I overcomplicate.

  11. The law of 3 is great. I’d also add Alex Fitel’s book “EXCUSES” to the list! Lots of good tips in there, too!

  12. MUST apply the law of three in my life!!! Thanks for sharing šŸ™‚

  13. Absolutely. Getting the most uncomfortable tasks out of the way first thing in the morning makes for a much better and more productive afternoon.

  14. My word this year is “do” so it is very fulfilling to check things off my to-do list!

  15. Those are great tips… generally try to follow the rules: If I can, I Delete It, If I can’t Delete It, I Defer It for Later, If I Can’t Defer It, I Delegate It, If I can’t delegate it, I do It! Now sometimes the Do It list gets a little overwhelming which is where I think the rule of 3 might come in handy instead of giving up on it all!

  16. I make lists and that usually keeps me on track with doing things that need to be done!

  17. We have to make out to do’s more managable so we can cross off. I put off things a lot like cleaning.

  18. I find myself struggling with huge to-do lists, thanks for the great advice! I really need to focus in the core tasks.

Tell me what you think.
