Either Nothing Or Work - You Decide

Being self-employed doesn't work if you aren't disciplined. Discipline equals freedom - the more strict you are with your time and self, the more flexible you can be with it...


But sometimes you just can't beat the distractions - most of us work with computers and it is the internet's sworn duty to disturb this discipline...


The internet gives us lots of choice, lots of things to do - it's greatest feature. Also it's greatest blight. Having choice kills disipline - it saps your ability to make a clear decision, you must reduce everythng down so there is no option but to get on with it...


When that alarm goes off, don't ever negotiate and snooze - you either get up or you don't...


Same with work - when you're at your desk you have 2 options. You can either do the work, or do nothing...


You're not allowed to do something else. Every time I have done this I inevitably end up working. The bordom gets to you and your mind wanders, looking for something to do.


This is great because it not only gets you to get more done but turns it into something you seek to do to cure your boredom...


I learn't this from Neil Gaiman in this great interview between Tim Ferris and him. Link here.
