|| Procrastination is one thing...interruptions are another. If I can work without interruption by my family or my other job, I do fine. If not, I'm easily sidetracked. Most web jobs are managable, but if I'm trying a really tricky design, or concentrating hard to get a bid, I get stressed and then other things suffer.

So tell me - what makes it so onerous? Is it that the size of the task makes it seem too hard, or do you just procrastinate...or is it something else?
The reason I ask is that the strategies you use to address this - and be comfortable with the changes you make - depends on why this bothers you. For example, if it's that the job is too big to handle until it's a crisis, you might find a way to break it down into smaller pieces of work that are more manageable. If it's procrastination, that strategy will not work as well.
On a general note, there are many fine resources on organization. One of my favorites is a monthly newsletter called the Organized Executive. I believe it comes out of Briefings Publishing Group. It's a quick, 8-page read.
