  1. Well this is spooky, it’s as if you are inside my head. Joking aside it’s reassuring to hear you are familiar with these issues and have techniques to overcome them. A few points have resonated with me. I hadn’t realised but I’ve definitely been adding the sand to the jar first so that will change from Monday. I also like the idea of monthly project planning, this is something i can get my teeth into. I already plan my day to some some extent but don’t add deadlines or time blocks so I’ll start this too. Like your 10mile run I an the kind of person who would hit a target and push for more so the 10min technique works for me too. Awesome advice as always Eb – thank you.

  2. These tips are so helpful that I’m not sure I should count reading this article as procrastination from writing my blog post… It’s definitely a pebble. Just an unplanned pebble. 😉
    But seriously, love the Pebbles and Sand analogy. That visual is burned into my mind! Also, “Just Write a Draft” and Done is Better Than Perfect? EXACTLY what I needed to hear right now! Adding “write first draft for blog post” as the only item on tomorrow’s to-do list!
    Thank you thank you thank you!

    1. Aw, yay! I am so pleased you found my post helpful… sometimes unplanned pebbles are good 😀 I hope you managed to get that first draft done! Eb 🙂

      1. I did get my draft done! Even though, it’s not ready to publish yet, I feel so good after getting over that hurdle! We can do hard things!
