A good group to support in their efforts in Haiti: Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)

Doctors Without Borders /Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) are a world renowned group working worldwide to provide humanitarian assistance, including Haiti. Even better, they are already in Haiti, which means they can provide assistance as fast as anyone looking for your support in helping Haitians. Based on reports, with the damage that has occurred to hospitals, they are going to need help.

You can find out more about them at the tumblr site I linked to.

And more importantly, you can donate here: https://donate.doctorswithoutborders.org/SSLPage.aspx?pid=197&hbc=1&source=ADQ1001E1D01

My tips for dealing with procrastination

I was thinking about this this morning as I struggled to get started on something. Here’s some notes on this

  • If you can’t get going on the thing you should be doing, get started on something else. Something you are interested in. Even better if it is something you need to do as well. At least this will get your started and give you momentum. After you have that momentum, you might find that you have enough momentum to move over and start working on the thing you should be doing.
  • Are you tired/hungry/thirty? Sometimes taking care of the basic needs will help get you motivated enough to get started.
  • Take the five minute approach. Say: I am going to work on this for five minutes, then stop. It’s hard to say: I can’t spare five minutes. I find once I do that, it helps me to get going.
