I've always been a sucker for stuff like this, not least because it's yet one more thing I can do to avoid starting work.

But I digress.

Here are the 3 tricks alluded to, in a nutshell:

• Screw it, let's do it (Richard Branson)

• Start sloppy

• Start small

Have at it: you can too!

One of my very favorite movies is "Cool Hand Luke," and not just because it's got Paul Newman at his most adorable. Also because of this 'tarring the road' scene, which demonstrates, kind of, my favorite anti-procrastination technique, where you pour on the coal and then you get to just fart around for hours, smugly. I love this part, when they've run out of road to tar:

Fellow Prisoner: "What're we gonna do now?"
Luke: "Nothing!" (laughs insanely)

That part where you get to do a whole lotta nothing is sooooo sweet. 😚
