hi all new here

Hi all, new here and thank God for this site, I really have to get things in order and the house de-cluttered and things done that I just don't even know where to start or how to start.  I loved the microburst article.  I think that will begin to help me.  I am at my wits end and I am losing everything, including my printer cd, which is critical due to my laptop crashing on me and also my virus cd that I just bought and had to re-buy due to losing it.  So not only is procrastinating cleaning and being orgainzed costing me money but time.  I am at a critical time in my life that if I don't stop procrastinating my life will be even more of a, any ideas will be appreciated...

well still haven't accomplished my task for the day......"frown"

well still struggling to just get started....will try to just do what she suggested as in a microburst by just doing a simple step, as a baby step microburst....

You can do it, Christy!

There probably isn't any "one perfect place" to start...but if you microburst something simple, you'll feel better about yourself. And then you might feel braver about the next microburst, etc.

For example, earlier today I did a microburst of just looking up a phone number. I wasn't committing to calling, or anything else, just looked up the number. No matter how small ... it's still an accomplishment!  The cool thing is, after a few of those, I felt good enough to actually make the calls - and that's how I got my MIT#1 done. Tiny works!

Hi Christy. I moved your post to the "Introductions" section so people would see it.

"Movingalong" posted a great message for newcomers with excellent advice. Here's the link:

Oops - and I see in another message that you already saw this post. That's good! Then here's another about how check-ins work:

 Check-ins are a great tool. Give it a try. I think you'll find it useful.

Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity is buried.
