Back to The War of Art, Again

Resistance and Procrastination, Part Two

“The most pernicious aspect of procrastination is that it can become a habit. We don’t just put off our lives today; we put them off till our deathbed.”
~Steven Pressfield, The War of Art

What a mouthful! Can you just imagine for a moment, putting off doing the work one day thinking you’ll get to  it tomorrow, and tomorrow becomes the next day, or even the next after that? Days could turn into weeks unless we  stop ourselves from jumping down that rabbit hole. There is every possibility that months can pass without putting brush to canvas, pen to paper.

Chose your poison.

Why is procrastination such an easy habit to develop? Life would be so much better if we could flip it around so that getting our work done consistently becomes the habit.

Somehow I am going figure out how to flip the switch and turn Mr. Resistance on his head.
