Procrastination

I have a subscription to a great blog called, Artsy Shark written by, + Carolyn Edlund the Executive Director of the Art Business Institute. The blog is a very practical and informative, and strives to enable emerging artists to educate themselves about the business side of being an artist and much more.

Here is a wonderfully helpful article about one my favourite nemesis, procrastination. It was once aptly put but some of my very favourite comedians. 
Procrastination is like masturbation.  At first it feels good, but in the end you’re only screwing yourself.
Monty Python

I feel exactly the same way! We're always saying we need more time, and then waste it away, procrastinating!!! I now have little colorful sticky in strategic places, asking me? "Are you procrastinating?" It reminds me to stop! :)

Thank you for your comment Indigene.It's such a common problem and I suspect most of us hate to admit it. I had to admit it to myself after a few really hard lessons and then went to work at changing my behaviour. Yes, I think how writing it down in the form of notes or journaling makes it real and there are only so many times you can wite it down before you start to do something about it with no more pretending everything is fine, and I'll get to it. I'm still a work in progress!
