Peter Shallard has been the Shrink For Entrepreneurs (one client is Michael Ellsberg).

He did a recent interview with Andrew Warner (Mixergy).

He has a site/service called Commit Action (started mid-2012) which is a service to help people fight Procrastinat Ion. It's a CoachIng service, for $130/mo.

He's defined "4 pillars" to achieve this:

  • Specificity of goals - needs to be big enough to connect to a larger MissIon, but "What can I move forward, entirely on my own, in this day and this day alone?"

  • Measurement - Tracking your actions (Gamificat Ion, Quantified Self) gets you over the hump of Delayed Gratification before the actual results will become visible. (That assumes the actions are the right path to the results. But certainly no action will probably lead to no results.)

  • Accountabil Ity - public Commit Ment)

  • Deadline - set yourself for every action/goal
