The Procrastination Equation: How to Stop Putting Things Off and Start Getting Stuff Done

This is a book The Procrastination Equation: How to Stop Putting Things Off and Start Getting Stuff Done is written by a Dr Piers Steel who is a procastionation expert.
 
Well I haven’t read it as such. It’s like the Now book. I went to the Foyles on Charring Cross Road. and browsed through it. Foyles basement has all the wonderful and strange self-help books. Everything I find myself in the basement I know I have procrastination issues and need a book to fix them. Leaving the basement empty handed is an achievement –it means I’m not relying on a quack book to fix my life. However at some point I’ll let you know those that have helped me and why. 

I digress I spend extra time procrastinating reading it. It told me things I already knew but in a different way. I needed goals. Eureak! How about an original concept? Dr Piers Steel recommended a programme called  Rescue time which I loaded onto my computer.  Rescuetime.com logs your time and give you weekly reports and more depending on what package you signed up to. Quite intrusive if you think  Rescuetime as a tracking device but I was desperate and thought it will cease me procrastinating. Atlas now though I have cut down my time to the dailymail.co.uk – I guess that’s because I’ve been rather busy of late. Dr Piers Steel does suggest other stuff but I was skimming through and you'll have to get the book to find out others.  

The basic problem about getting The Procrastination Equation: How to Stop Putting Things Off and Start Getting Stuff Done  about procrastinating is just really finding another way to procrastinate. It’s just another or new way to package the ‘time management’ theme. It’s really common sense. I think I procrastinate because I can or would rather not deal with something.

Rescuetime.com does work but is annoying. It polices your ever move however I wasn’t as bad as I thought. It’s very irritating now and I’m thinking of unloading it.

Dr Piers Steel's basic message in  The Procrastination Equation: How to Stop Putting Things Off and Start Getting Stuff Done make goals you can acheive and stick to them. However like all there are a few case-studies who change their lives and if you have a time to procrastinate and feel you are progressing with the issue well you can always have a read. Did I get it? No. However you know books are not about what it says but how he says it so Dr Piers Steel's message may appeal to you. Unfortunately it does not browse facility on Amazon but  it may change your life so have a browse and see.

Growing Up Hip Hop Episode 6 Season Finale: A Question for Romeo- The Virgin Queen Angela or sexy Kristinia 'The Missing Kardashian Sister' DeBarges.

To my surprise I found this was the season finale, and I think due the lacklustre performance and lack of promotion by any of the investors or stars it may not be commissioned for a second season. Frankly when I found out this was the final episode in the series I thought it was an anti climax. Why? Well the cliffhangers were Angela's stalker who no one really cares about, and also Romeo driving away to have a threesome probably fake with Kristinia 'The missing Kardashian sister' DeBarge and her friend Ashley.
Oh well let's starts with my observations of this show. Will I be watching it again? I don't know. They even seem to having a reunion.

Def Jam and Phat Farm Founder Uncle Russell Gives Angela Simmons A Piece of Mind The show kicks off with Angela Simmons sprawled out on her virgin white bedsheets when Uncle Russ gives her a call for an update on the stalker situation. She tells him she’s made contact with the stalker. 


Uncle Phat Farm Russ goes crazy and yell…

Basketball Wives season 5 - Episode 4: It's all about Evelyn missing wife-headpuncher Chad and Tami seeking drama over what Shaunie said to Tasha Marbury. Suzie Ketcham says jaw surgery was to correct assault on her jaw used as punching bag by some unnamed ex of hers

This was show all about Evelyn 'Will-I-go-back-to-Chad' Lozada and Tami 'I'll-punch-you-in-the-face' Roman.  It's got to be the most boring Basketball Wives I've watched.  And it was so boring so I'll just cover some points and in no particular order. I hope it makes sense in some way?

UPDATE: NOTE: Tami confirms in her blog that her mother died at Tami's home surrounded by her family - that is Tami and her two daugthers who were with her when she died.

Evelyn continues to whines about Chad Johnson Ochocinco


Evelyn goes on and on about Chad Johnson Ochocinco till at some point I start to feel sorry for the man. This is too bad because I can't believe that I feel sorry for Chad Johnson Ochocinco. Never thought I would say this. POOR CHAD. Seriously, Poor Chad Johnson Ochocinco. I really do feel for him because it's like an nightmare that will never end. For him and for us. Evelyn too because she has that horrible gash on her forehead. No …

R&B Divas LA season 1 episode 3: Kelly Price, Chante Moore, Lil’ Mo, Claudette Ortiz, Michel’le and Dawn Robinson all go to Vegas, Chante Moore is all about female empowerment and self-marrage, Dawn Robinson reveals more about her hurtful and abusive marrage also struggles to have a child,Lil Mo and Chante Moore save the day singing at Boardway in the Hood.

This show is pleasant, honest and easy to watch. I think they have go the balance right in this case because I can see people like Chante Moore, Lil Mo, Michel'le and to some extent Dawn Robinson not standing for any behind the scenes rubbish - however time will tell since it's still early days.
These women are hungry  in a different way to the ones in R&B Diva's Atlanta. With the exception of Claudette Ortiz- these are very cast full of strong women and know their worth! I say that because Claudette Ortiz is the youngest by a good few years.

So given that the foolery that is Basketball Balls Miami will be starting with Tami, Evelyn Lozada and Shaunie O'Neil soon this is a good cool down show.

Lil Mo, Dawn Robinson and Claudette Ortiz bond over  'All we have being through' discussions.

It kicks off with Lil Mo, Dawn Robinson and Claudette Ortiz all discussing the monologues. Yada, yada, yada they keep on talking.


 For the hundredth time in the show Dawn Ro…
