Do you procrastinate because the thought of starting a new project around the home or at work -- or even completing some lesser task like fixing the backyard fence -- is just too much? 

Do you often feel overwhelmed by all the things you have to do and, as a result, become paralyzed, unable to get much of anything done? 

Do you end up frequently making excuses because you haven’t completed tasks you promised others you’d do? 

I’ve never had trouble getting things done.  I’m extremely driven, very good about getting things done and on time. But that doesn’t mean it’s always easy or that I don’t feel overwhelmed at times when I contemplate all the things I have to do or beginning a new project. 

What helps me over come paralysis are several little tricks. They work all the time for me, helping me  overcome the forces that would otherwise keep me from meeting my obligations and living a productive life. You might benefit from some of these elegantly simple tools and techniques. 

The first tool that helps me organize and plan my day and get started is a good old-fashioned notebook to record to do lists and lots more. I’m staring at one now as I write this blog.
