Resources are links, templates, and suggested sites that can be helpful to you. I have no set list of things I put in here but I add whatever I feel might be helpful. The weight of informaiton available is sometimes overwhelming so it is important to keep a perspective on this. Filling your inbox with information without doing anything about it is not productive, does not necessarily contribute to change or address procrastination.
These are only aids and the drive and motivation to change must come from you.
I will keep adding useful links as I find them
