Procrastination

“Don’t let perfection become procrastination. Do it now.”Danielle LaPorte

Fear. Often an ilussion, a self imposed limit. Wanting perfection yet fearing that the outcome of our endeavor might fall short is the very definition of procrastination.

Yet we all do it.

We all postpone the most important and relevant decisions.

We fail to act because we believe there’s a future when we won’t be afraid. We’ll be better.

Well, there is no future. Not yet.

And you’ll never be better if you don’t start now.

Just do your thing. Don’t think. Just do your thing.

Sounds stupid? Reckless? Naive?

Maybe it is, but the simple truth in this world is that those who wait for the perfect moment get beaten by those who are so stupid and reckless and naive that they don’t.

Enough said.

Let’s get some stuff done.

  1. A brilliant blog post. Can I reblog this please? I think my readers, as few as they are would love this call to action.

    As someone who has procrastinated a lot in life and fought to break through it I can safely say all your words ring so very true….!

  3. Really true. I think most creative types struggle with procrastination one way or another.

    Cristian, my friend. Thank you for this post. I really needed to hear this today. Thank you!
    I so often fall into this trap. I tell myself I am not good enough. I am not good enough. Yet, only with practice would I be good enough. I focus on forgetting and ignoring everything. My thoughts, my feelings, my situations, my whereabouts. Only then do I get to be in the zone and work and learn and feel rewarded for it!

  5. I totally agree, Cristian. Instead of talking about something, wishing and hoping for it, make it happen. You may fail but at least you tried. Plus you will learn lessons so that you will be stronger at your next attempt. Very inspirational post!

    Good word Cristian, short and to the point. I’m inspired to do something more important right now!

  7. I agree. There is no such thing as the perfect moment. You have to go for it, believe in yourself and make the best out of everything.

  8. I used to think that in order to write you had to have all the answers. Then I grew to realize that in order to write what you really need are questions.
