“I can’t decide if procrastination kills creativity or is essential to it.” This is a tweet by Grant Snider.
I am the queen of procrastination…always have been, but hopefully not forever. Does it kill creativity? No, sometimes it really is essential to it. In my case, the longer I procrastinate about writing, the more ideas pile up in my head. This gives me blogging fodder for a few days at a time.
On the other hand, though, once I’ve procrastinated for a few days it sometimes can lead to more than a week or two with no writing at all. So, there’s obviously two sides to this procrastination coin.
One of my favorite procrastination quotes is, “I gave up procrastinating as a new year’s resolution but I put it off until next year.”
Are you serious about beating procrastination? I’ve been struggling with mine for the last 10 years and read countless books and self help methods. Here is what I’m having best results with. First of all, procrastination bulldozer method has worked wonders for me. I highly recommend you apply it. Secondly, whenever you have a task that takes less than 5 minutes to do, do it right away. No delays. I’m really starting to take control of my life now.
Thank you! I am trying your methods immediately. I told myself I’d respond to your response later, but here I am! You’re the best!
