I promised to report back today on the success of my 4-day win, which I shared earlier this week on Martha Beck's blog in Death to procrastination: Use the 4-day win to get your goals moving.
I encouraged readers to share their own goals and we got some specific
examples from Mike, Andy, Latarsha, Rosalind, Billionaire Strategies,
Glenda, Kizla, Jan Marie and Judy (see comments on the original post).
My 4-day win involved working on a book proposal, a task I have
tried to accomplish in the past (without success, and with great
consternation). My specific goals and rewards are in this worksheet

I had fun using the tool and reported on my lessons learned here.
If you were doing the experiment yourself, please let me how it went by leaving a comment.

Progress is relative, isn't it?
