Default The Action Machine - Stop Procrastinating!

The Action Machine v2.0

Quit 'Spinning Your Wheels', Going To Bed
Feeling Guilty You Wasted Your Day, And Seeing
More And More Stuff Pile Up In Your Life.

Presenting . . . THE ACTION MACHINE!

Here's How The Action Machine Lives Up To Its Name:

* Flip The Action Switch In Your Your Head From 'NO' To 'YES'
No longer will overwhelmingly big tasks paralyze you from taking
little to no action. Use The Action Machine to break these
monsters into smaller, bite-sized pieces you WANT to eat!

* Laugh At Procrastination - Take any task you've been putting
off, give yourself 30 minutes to get it done, start your timer,
and watch what happens. This simple process, which The Action
Machine automates, creates a 'virtual' space in your brain for
that task that you feel unexplainably compelled to fill with
its completion!

* Sharpen Your Focus - Using The Action Machine regularly helps
you get into the habit of eliminating productivity-killing
distractions so you focus your concentration and energy to the
task-at-hand.

* Build Unstoppable Momentum - With each task you complete
using The Action Machine, you build up a momentum that propels
you to not only get more done, but get it done faster and more
efficiently than ever!

* Get Your Brain Storming - Experience the liberating and
revealing practice of brainstorming by setting aside a specific
amount of time before starting any project to do it. Even short,
15 minute brainstorming sessions can produce some eye-opening
results.

* Control Your Time Instead Of It Controlling You - Using The
Action Machine helps to become more aware of how and where
you spend your time each day. As you become more aware of
your habits, you easily discover ways to use your time more
productively, and eliminate previously hidden time-wasters.

* Find Balance In Your Life - Add more structure to every one
of your days by purposely allotting specific chunks of time for
work, play, and growth so that you avoid the frustration and
unhappiness that comes from an unbalanced life.

* Make Time For Your Dreams - Are you neglecting your dreams
and letting everything else gobble up your limited time, energy,
and resources? Use The Action Machine to make time every day
to take even a little action to move you closer to things you
want in life!

* Smash Those Nagging Small Tasks With A Sledgehammer!
You know the kind; they're important, and they need done,
but they're small and you never seem to find time get them
done and cross them off your list. Use The Action Machine,
set aside a measly 30 minutes, and don't just whittle away
at your list - set it on fire!

* Go From Great To Good Enough - Spending too much time on a
project/task due to perfectionism can almost be as unproductive
as putting it off completely. You'll reel in this nasty habit
completely by giving clear, specific time-limits to tasks and
an alarm that acts as a slap-in-the-face that it's time to move on.

* Limit Your Intake Of 'Time-Snacks' - Quit checking email, Twittering,
and updating your Facebook page mindlessly, with no regard for how
it's eating-away at your time, then feeling guilty about it all later.
Use The Action Machine to 'allow' yourself a specific amount time to
enjoy it as much as you want.

Good luck!

Looks interesting, I'm a master procrastinator and really need to stop. I remember in 11th grade I put off this 3 month science project till the very last night and still managed to pull off a B-. That success went to my head. I thought "If I can do 3 months of work in a night I must be a genius!!"...I was wrong

Learning to stop procrastinating is a skill I think a lot of people who are self-employed, like a lot of us on here are, need to learn. It doesn't come right away. Nothing helps with that better than having a deadline, and that's what this does. Hope it works well for you.

The fact that we are self employed means that at some point in time we took the initiative to start our own source of income which means that we aren't serial procrastinators. Most people dream of being self employed which is the reason I haven't told any friends of my source of income, but the fact that we are self employed deserves some credit.

Actually I PRIDE myself at being a "Master Zen Procrastinator"

I absolutely Love being able to put off what I don't want to do, getting up when I want to and watching every movie ever released. :D

There is only one thing I will not procrastinate...Getting my shipments out right away.

"And going to the bank when cash involved - can't procrastinate that ha"

Amen to that

Hi

Some great and useful points.

The mediafire link doesn't work anymore, when I hit the 'download' button.

Is there an alternative means?
