Beating Procrastination

I read the book “Rework” a few years ago and I still remember the words that inspired me and got me through the tough times when I tend to find excuses not to do my paintings. Whilst I believe that balancing work and rest is important, procrastination (if we learn to identify it) is not helpful and led me to many situations of unnecessary stress. So here’s my mantra when I notice that I am making a pattern of excuses and unproductive rationalisation: make time and just pick up your brush. And once I get into the flow the magic happens (most of the time).

One thought on “Beating Procrastination

  1. If you want something bad enough, you make time … I agree … but, if one doesn’t make time for it or has shady excuses not to, could that not mean that one does not want that something bad enough? And would that not be o.k.?
