Getting things done

  1. I was chatting with a friend and mentioned a problem that plagues me, an inability to get things done, either due to never starting or starting but not finishing. She recommended a book about “how to get things done” and within 30 seconds, I had ordered it from Amazon. Impressed by my speed and decisiveness, I wondered whether I needed the book after all.

  2. About a week later, Amazon sent me an email informing me that it was going to take longer than the 4 day estimate they’d promised to deliver the book to me, a week or two longer in fact, but they hadn’t forgotten and were working on it, but in the unlikely case that they would be unable to ship, they’d let me know.

    You should cancel the order, you’ll never make it past chapter 1

    one question; Slovenia??? I’m a 21-year-old Slovenian woman and was just looking what is written on the internet about vampires in Slovenia. And that’s how I ended up here… I wonder… what is this page all about? Fiction or the truth?

  3. While you wait for the book, here’s a tip: Make sure you put reading this book on your list of things to do. If you don’t have such a list, then make sure you put making this list on your meta-list of the lists you need to make. If you don’t have this meta-list then fall back on any readily accessible procrastinory measure, with the faith that someday, when you’re putting off something else that needs to be done, you’ll chance upon the book, and start reading it.
