    -William Mathews
  • 20. ABCDE Method
    Think on Paper
    Place ABCDE next to each A next to each item on the list before you begin the first task.

  • 25. Poor Performance Produces Procrastination
    The better you become in a particular skill area, the more motivated you will be to perform that function, the less you will be to procrastinate.
  • 26. The Great Question?
