I admit it, I am a terrible procrastinator. But I am having to do something about it. NOW.
In a matter of weeks, I will be facing assignments and a dissertation for the course I’m doing. So far, I’m keeping on top of the reading, but I know that I could read for ever. Sooner or later, I have to actually put pen to paper. So, I looked for practical advice on how to overcome this habit of endlessly putting off the evil moment. I know that many of the people I coach share the procrastination affliction, so this may help all of us. Interesting that I have no problem with writing like this, but when the work is going to be marked, that’s a different story.
I found this great article, specifically targeting those who, like me, put off writing assignments. The opening quote hit the nail on the head for me:
“The art of writing is the art of applying the seat of the pants to the seat of the chair.” (Mary Heaton Vorse)
Simple isn’t it. I shall give it a try. Let me know how you get on too.
