    Hi all, just dug up this article I read a little while ago; I found it interesting – you might too…

    He had a gem of a leverage technique he used on himself and you can use it to motivate yourself—even when you don’t feel like it.

    Jerry Seinfeld’s Productivity Secret

    and

    It’s a nice idea. I’ve tried a couple of times, and find it really hard to keep a chain going having two kids under 3… Should ease up soon (hopefully). In the meantime, yascal.simplegames.ca is a nice site for doing this online if you prefer that to paper (you can also make yourself publicly accountable.

    Cheers

    I like lifehacker too :)

    My 4 year old puts stickers on a calendar when he does violin practice. It is pretty much all the motivation he needs and if he gets a sticker 3 days in a row it does increase the chances of him practising every day of that week.

    I’ve now discovered that my wife is putting stickers on a calendar too for one of her goals…

    Lurking here for years and just signed up so I could say this., I read about this jerry seinfeld thing a month or so ago, checked it out and thought it would be better on my phone. Found a free app called “My chain”.

    It’s the same idea but on ‘roids, it’s great.. Instead of having one chain can have as many as you like as widgets. I have 10 seperate chains running, running, seo, content, blah blah blah, I set a timer for each one and when the timer runs out I mark off another day on the chain. check it out if you have an android, I went from not running for excersise ever in my life, 12 days ago I put it on my chain and I ran 2km today.

    An app sounds like a fantastic idea! I have so many things that I always mean to make time for but never do…

    Great articles too, very motivating for a Friday!

    Great article and great tip. Just a bit disappointed there was no “and finally Jerry said” joke at the end…

    Thank you for sharing this. I have problems regarding procrastination be it at work or any work that should be done in the house. Having that, I end up with tons of work loads and that just made it more difficult to accomplish. I hope this works for me, wish me best of luck!
