Procrastination no more. Sort of. Maybe. Who am I kidding?
It’s been almost two months since my last post and I’ve been well aware of it for nearly two months. It’s not that I don’t want to write to you. It’s more like writing takes second place to designing, so when I sit down at my computer, I look for design deadlines. Did I mention deadlines?
That’s how I function — the only way anything gets done around here! I don’t have writing deadlines, so writing becomes a nice idea. You see, self-imposed deadlines don’t really work for me. I know I can move those to help me hit the real deadlines — the important ones. To be fair, the design deadlines are more important because they’re for our clients. They’re promises and we don’t take those lightly.
So I find myself here, finally writing about something many of you struggle with as well. Writers do tend to put off even what they love because it’s intimidating. You want to please your readers. You want to be perfect. I get it. For me, just writing a blog post is intimidating. What do you want to read? Should I share my personal life or just professional information? Does it have to be a long, well-thought-out post? What graphics should I use with it? HELP! No, really, please help. Why do you read this? What do you want to read? Let’s chat!
And once you leave your comments below, you’ll want to watch this entertaining and thought-provoking TED talk about procrastination from Tim Urban. It’s less than 15 minutes and you can watch it instead of doing whatever you were just finally going to do. 😉
Many blessings to you!
PS: Does anyone besides Erin and I automatically sing “Procrastination” to the tune of Rod Stewart’s song “Infatuation”? You’re welcome.
