Just wanted to say I've heard from others that the live phone meetings for CLA are very helpful - where they talk for a few minutes, then all go work for 15 minutes, then check back in, and so on. I can't usually make it to the phone meetings on time.
However, today, I found it SUPER SUPER helpful - really more than anything else has been - to have micro-burst buddies in the chat room, where we check in, set timer for 5, 10 or 15 minutes, and go do something, and then check back in. This was so helpful for me that I hope other people might want to do it, too. One of my biggest challenges with procrastination is feeling so overwhelmed and isolated with tasks, and having a microburst buddy helps with feeling overwhelmed (it's only 5 minutes) and with feeling isolated (at the end of the 5 minutes, someone is waiting there for you, who's in the same boat!)
I wanted to propose that maybe we have a microburst chat room where people can get together and be microburst buddies for certain periods of the day. I made more progress on my apartment cleaning and handling awful work today than I have made in months, so I'd love it if other people wanted to do this, too.
Let me know!!
