Hassle Me!

Here's something original - how about hassling YOURSELF to do something? There's this cool website, www.hassleme.co.uk, that allows you to send yourself emails "hassling" you to do something.

The thing I like about it is that the "hassling emails" are sent pretty randomly. It's not for business, like setting an Outlook reminder to tell you to go to your 10 o'clock meeting. Instead, you can set it up to be hassled every "x" days to stick to your diet or go to the gym or call your mother or finish painting the dining room or do something nice and unexpected for your spouse.

It's like nagging yourself! Definitely better than someone else nagging you. :) Although, you could enter someone else's email address and send THEM hassling emails...

Katherine, you're my heroine!!

This is EXACTLY what I need to get my butt in gear in relation to my writing. I'm the world's WORST procrasinator but I'm also the most determined when goaded, er "reminded". (Think cattle prod. lol)

THANKS for the link tip! I'm definitely trying it out.

Hmm, my bad conscience sending me real e-mails. I think maybe I'd prefer unconditional-praise-mail.
