Advice for Stopping a Nag

If your visitors complain about being nagged by supervisors or coworkers, Gretchen Rubin has some suggestions to consider:
  • Answer and acknowledge what was said;
  • Commit to a deadline;
  • Find a way remind yourself;
  • Ask for a reminder;
  • Explain why you’re not responding; and
  • Do what is being asked.
Sure, the term "nag" is loaded with pejorative connotations, but some of these ideas may be useful. (The Happiness Project.)
