I’ve been thinking a lot about procrastination and why I do it. Ironically, I started writing this episode on Monday, and now it’s Wednesday. I am still writing, waiting, not sure for what. I listed the usual culprits and excuses: boredom, imposter syndrome, conflict avoidance, worrying about what people will say, the lack of response. But one surprise caught me off guard, and that’s what I’ll be talking about today. If you are struggling with procrastination, more specifically, putting the work you want to be known for in the future to the side—while you do everything and anything else—then this episode is for you.
