A Procrastination Killer – Date Stamper

A Procrastination Killer – Date Stamper

Over Talking Story with Say Leadership Coaching, Rosa has a good new toy for killing procrastination – Self-Inking Date Stamper. How does this work? When she handles a paper of paper (no matter if you are collecting, processing reviewing, delegating), she stamps it with the date stamper. With the date on the paper, when she procrastinates, come back and read the paper and try to process it again, it gives her incentive to rethink and realize her bad habit of procrastination:

… Having to see that line-up of dates on the number of times I have renegotiated a previous agreement with something has effectively killed my bad habits with procrastinating about doing stuff. If I just multiply the number of dates times 5 minutes, realizing the time I have lost in kidding myself about something creates BIG incentive with me for getting the dirty deed done once and for all…

Neat!

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
