Here’s an email I got recently that I thought might speak to you:

Hello Dear Samantha,

I listened to the recording of the Procrastination tele-seminar last night, woke up this morning and walked straight to the bathroom to pee, but before I brushed my teeth or put clothes on or anything, I went to the cold downstairs and worked on my original music for 15 minutes and really got something good accomplished! (run-on sentence intended)

Here’s my question – I actually have not just original music, but also music for hire, taxes, and de-cluttering all weighing on me.

The idea of spending 15 minutes on each shuts me down. How do I choose what to do? How do I juggle these different boulders? The music for hire is what I need to LIVE off of so I can do my original music, and I haven’t done it since June, when I got the project. Now my head is spinning.

Do you have an idea?

I love your attitude and perspective,


And here’s what I wrote back:

Hi Nedi –

Hooray! Hooray for you! Great work jumping into your original music – fuzzy teeth and all 🙂 Feels so good, doesn’t it?

I can think of a number of suggestions for you –

1) Just stick with working on your original music every day for a month or two until you reach a natural stopping point, then transition to another “daily” project.

2) Make a few lists of a bunch of different 15-minute tasks for each of your projects and each morning just pick one task that feels good (it’s crazy how much progress you can make with this technique).

3) Assign each project a day: Monday for original music, Tuesday for taxes, Wednesday can be a “free choice” day, then Thursday for music for hire, etc.

Experiment until you find a system that really works for you – remember, there’s no right way to succeed, there’s just YOUR way. You’ve got some great momentum going, so stick with it, OK? And don’t forget to reward yourself for doing such good work.

And please let me know how it goes.
