1. Are you an online retailer of physical stuff? Yes? Then you must read this. It’s the best answer to the question “Should I charge delivery?” that I’ve come across. Worth giving it a go methinks.


2. Thistip for how to get a particular task done every day is just perfect. It’s incredibly simple and (although I’ve only been doing it for a week or so) it really seems to work. I think it best suits a little something that you need to do daily (rather than one that you take a break over the weekend, say).


3. Here’s an interesting look at procrastination and an 8 step plan for beating it. I like the way it makes you think about which emotion is preventing you from getting going. Out of the three choices mine is mainly ‘anger’ (not that I’m angry but I do resent doing stuff I don’t like). Which is yours?


4. Need more willpower or want to be a little more persistent. Try these ten fun little psychological tricks. My favourite is the nap!


5. Finally here’s a fabulous article about ‘free’. It’s less about whether you should offre ‘free’ and more about whether you’re being sucked in by it! Sigh.


Till next week
