What was astonishing to me is something that should be more apparent to all of us: the exercises that caused people to increase their progress dramatically were those that took the pressure off, those that did away with the crippling perfectionism that caused people to quit their goals. Whether they were trying to lose a pants size, write more content on a blog, or get a raise, the results were the same. The less that people aimed for perfect, the more productive they became.

Every day that is wasted by doing nothing that makes your life better is an absolute waste. If you decide that you would rather go to the movies, watch TV, or go out with your friends that is a choice you make not to further your own progress. This is not to say that there isn't a place for relaxation but relaxation is not to be used as an excuse not to move forward. Make each day count for you will never, ever get it back, nor can you really make up for lost time in any effective way.
Byron Pulsifer, Dream Big And Live Life Well
Time  |   


Now that I am working for myself, there is no one to report to. So it is very easy to be busy but accomplish very little. An example of this is one of my other websites. In this case, I had no newsletter that had to be done weekly. I had no updates to post. So I worked away on the website but with very little focus. I was getting frustrated as I felt I was investing a lot of time and seeing no progress. So, I developed a list and each week, if I do nothing else, I make sure I complete the items on the list.
Catherine Pulsifer, Busy but No Accomplishments
