This morning I set time to start calling prospects to set up solicitations.

And I found out I’m really good at distracting myself! I checked GoogleNews. Then I made a call.

I remembered I needed to read an article on one of the people before I called. I printed out the article and made another call.

I noticed I was behind in my reading the Chronicle of Philanthropy.

I wasn’t even asking, I was just setting up appointments.

I’d already researched and engaged. I knew these were the right people to ask for this project.

And I was still procrastinating.

But I did get some calls in and set up a bunch of appointments. (Some solicitation; some cultivation.) So I have moved forward.

If you’re in a procrastination mode too, check out my post called: Ask!

It helped me!
