Try to understand why you procrastinate in the first place and target that. Next time you are doing it stop for a second and pay attention to your thoughts and what you are feeling mentally and physically

Every complex thing I do can somehow be broken down into a 10 minute task. When I’m feeling uninspired or lost on where to begin, I set a 10 minute goal. If that goes well, I tackle the next 10 minutes, etc. This helps me structure something overwhelming into something manageable, and is easy enough to apply to everything. I also obsessively use Trello.

What are you procrastinating on?

Every emotion reaction called for an action. Whenever you feel overwhelming because of procrastination, just do it.

My District decided to initiate a “no zero policy” starting now. I was informed by administration that when a student does not turn in their work, I still have to give the student a fifty percent even though that student didn’t earn it. I teach sixth graders and I am not sure how I feel about this. Any words of advice?

There's a $200 golf networking event at some country club. Considering how important playing golf was in my previous company I'm inclined to go - but it's so expensive and then I have to get to the place which will be commuter train tickets plus an approximately $25 Lyft *each way*. Plus I think I might have to buy special golf clothes. I'd be going for the golf lessons starting at 2PM and it includes a cocktail reception and dinner. The companies sponsoring seem meh. Is it worth it?
