Some are applicable at this particular moment in time! (I'm procrastinating).
I need to command my muscles and get my bum off this chair...
I have a book on neurolinguistic programming, but I never got around to reading it. Think I should? These quotes are great.
I'm not sure who wrote the book that I have. Let's see... It's by Joseph O'Connor and John Seymour. Have you heard of them?
Introducing Neuro-Linguistic Programming
I've got it and think it's great. I've got quite a few books on NLP and I find it helpful in many aspects of my life, not just procrastination.
I haven't heard of the authors - or at least read any of their work.
The book we're reading through now is 'Manage your fears, manage your anger' by Abraham Low
I originally found this group from a lady in the program that I met on a bus. It's completely different than 12/12.
I go for anger and procrastination. It's solution oriented. When I first started, I gave examples of procrastinating in school and it was so helpful. I could not find a 12/12 on procrastination. I found one for time-debting, but it was more of processing. I need a solution based program for procrastination.
Here's NY link.
It's contribution only. It's simple and structured. The lingo is very effective for me b/c I am so word oriented. That is, I believe our 'words do not return void'. (Florence Scovel Shinn quote)
12-step doesn't mean no tools
You don't have to like the 12-steps, but just FYI... 12-step doesn't mean "no tools". Different programs have different tools, and one of the very powerful tools of PA is bookending (check-ins), which is working powerfully for me and slider and others. Another powerful tool is literature. We're still working on that here, but we've got some useful articles on the site and there will be more.
just wondering - do you plan on referring to the steps for this group? like when you get an online meeting going? if so, maybe we can have a forum or something with the 12/12 posted now.
i like what you have here - i was just wondering. 4th step would be quite lengthy for me :)
either way is good though!
I do like the 12 steps. I meant that particular time-debting group, not in general. I use the tools, esp from DA. The time-debting group was a start up from a DA group and did not have specific tools established yet.
I'll be more aware of wording when I refer to 12-step programs for those new to this.
I'm not really sure what you are refering to though?
I take it 12/12 refers to the 12 step programme (not sure why, but it's got a '12' in it!). I'm finding the tools here very helpful, and I'd be interested in working in a stepwise manner too. I know very little about 12 step programmes other than what I've read here, and a couple of links I followed up, and I don't really know how to adapt it to different situations (like procrastination).
i can give you more insight
I can give you more info - but I want to see what pro has in mind for this site. I'll be glad to email you some info :)
it's not a big secret or anything, just some traditions and guidelines that when followed, help things go more smoothly.
