A little off topic here but it seems that a lot of the members on this list have fought the procrastination battle and are in various states of triumph.
I've been struggling lately and thought I might ask for some help.
In my work I actually do need to do a lot of research on the web. But I find that I very easily get sucked into the byways and hidden treasures of the net - ending up spending a lot of time "researching" things that although interesting don't ultimately add a lot to what I am doing. In other words - I'm wasting time.
I've tried not using the web completely unless I have something specific to look up - creating a next action category of @web to hold these specific things. This sort of works but as soon as I have an action that requires a google search it inevitably leads me away. Besides that seems a waste when there is so much to explore.
I've tried setting time limits but I always seem to find the most interesting thing just when I said I would stop.
I guess I know the answer is to concentrate on what I'm doing and get out of there. A bit like shopping at the supermarket.
