Too often I find myself puzzled by a situation. Asking questions is not always easy either.
Often I hear: "You don't know what an A player is until you've met one" Ok that's not useful right now for me. What is useful though is I can ask myself what would an A player do in the situation I'm in, I know this may sound corny, but I find it helps me.
The A player varies with the situation. The one constant is - "What would so and so do in this situation? What would be the next step according to him/her" and then I go and execute. Putting myself in someone else's shoes for a short period of time to analyze or action on something I have to do - helps me and reduce my overall procrastination ratio! I don't know why, but when I do this, I always have the feeling I gave it my best shot, and this feels good going home at night.
