As a victim of CPS (Chronic Procrastination Syndrome), I’ve found some helpful strategies via www.unstuck.com, which provides an app for iPad with tools and tips and also sends a regular newsletter. Look for more about the site/app in a later post.  This week’s Unstuck offering included this quote from the late Carl Castaneda.  Castaneda was enigmatic and controversial…and that’s putting it mildly…but I think this idea is right on target:

“We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same.” 

True for students; true for teachers.
