Use avoidance as a productivity tool

It’s amazing what I can get done when I don’t want to do something. Seriously, some of my most productive times are when I want to avoid doing a dreaded task. I keep looking at my to-do list and will do anything (and everything) else. Hell, it’s how I wrote this email so quickly.


Today, play a mental game with yourself and put something on your list that you don’t want to do. See if it tricks you into doing more.


Then, gulp, start your day off with that frog tomorrow.
