Make Time Work For You
Any habit of mind or body that interferes with taking decisive action contributes to your tendency to procrastinate. Think about your good habits and the environment that leads you to be most productive. Consider your preferred working hours, your optimum concentration periods, and the ways you have been successful in the past. You can begin to build on your good points first by recognizing them and giving yourself credit for them. Then, enhance the skills and techniques you already have with those presented here and beat the specter of procrastination once and for all.
If you can identify your work patterns you will see how procrastination weaves itself into your work-day. Few of us say, "OK, now I am going to procrastinate for forty minutes." Instead, we let procrastination slip in under some other guise. To focus your thoughts on your habits, ask yourself these questions: What are my daily work patterns? (Keep a written record for 3 days, noting activities in fifteen-minute intervals) -- 1) When do I try to tackle tasks that I dislike? 2) When do I socialize or concentrate on "easy-work" instead of undertaking more important tasks? 3) How do I usually handle large, annual projects?
Once you have a work habit record, take the time to analyze it: When you do so, be thoughtful and honest as you answer the following questions. Remember, you are striving to improve productivity, not to reinforce procrastination. 1) Do I avoid making and refining decisions and thus deny myself the opportunity to apply myself to the goal at hand? 2) Do I take the least active option? 3) Do I allow negative ideas about a task to balloon? 4) Do I fabricate reasons for postponing action? 5) Do I need imposed pressures to finish a task?
Once you record and analyze your work pattern, you can make your time more effective. 1) Manipulate your environment to your advantage by making your actual work-space fit your ideal as much as you can. 2) Use your best working time to concentrate on the jobs that give you the most difficulty. Set aside a specific period of time for a task and stick to your commitment. 3) Keep track of your time and how you spend it. If it slips by unnoticed, it will usually slip by under-used.

How to Find More Time in Your Day-Balancing Career and Family
Goal Planning-Achieving balance in a person's life requires assessment of one's goals and priorities.

What Are You Thinking?

How much of your 24 hour time frame would you spend sitting on that chair instead of talking to people about it?
