“If You Don’t Do It Now, You’ll Regret It Later” by David B. Bohl at Slow Down Fast. This post is a great reminder of the ways living in the future can work against both productivity and peace of mind. On a writer’s note, I am a fan of David’s straightforward, honest tone. http://www.slowdownfast.com/blog/if-you-dont-do-it-now-youll-regret-it-later/
“Gradual Organization: How To Go From Slob To Productive” by Scott Young for I Will Change Your Life. I believe that writing is a habit you develop and work on, much like productivity and organization are habits that can be developed and improved. Scott’s post is a great reflective overview of how he changed some significant habits in his life. I think that these tips can easily be applied to “the writing habit” or, failing that, they can be used to help you get more time out of your day for — what else — writing! http://www.iwillchangeyourlife.com/2008/02/15/gradual-organization-how-to-go-from-slob-to-productive/
