Calling All Readers!

What are your tips on over coming procrastination? and....since procrastionation often leads to clutter, what have you done to solve this? Do you set a timer for 15 minutes and attack the kitchen junk drawer? Please send your solutions and I'll post them.

I do use the 15 minute timer routine, a la FlyLady. Invariably, I end up spending more than 15 minutes on the task, but it forces me to be more focused. My usual multi-taking style often leaves me with many things started and few things completed. Doing one thing at a time is actually more effective.

Thanks for your response. Good to hear the 15 minute timer does work! I think that most of us are so used to multi-tasking that we have a hard time doing just one thing.

My husband and two teen daughters have ADD so our house is always cluttered. I make a "to do" list for them and will only do them favors when one of the "to dos" is complete. For myself, I create some type of "reward" for completing a task...and try not to become overwhelmed and inert when too many things are in the queue.

Calling all parents of teenagers.
Cathie may be on to something here!
...and don't we all like to reward ourselves?
