About a two months ago I started to write this article in attempt to jump-start myself back into the groove of writing again. I figured a good place to start was to highlight a few articles I added to the Commons Musician News feed on procrastination 'cause that's exactly what I've done for the last few months.
So I started writing and what happened? I procrastinated. Of course I have all kinds of excuses. Work is mega crazy. I'm having to sub for missing band members on instruments I've never played or haven't picked up in years. My house is a frenzy of activity with end-of-school year going-ons. Yadda, yadda, yadda. Really there's no excuse. I seem to find enough time to clear my Hulu queue and feed my Creeper World addiction.
So to start out, here's a rather appropriate article from Tom Jackson titled, "Procrastination Is a 4 Letter Word" on how musicians tend to put things off 'till the last minute. Lifehacker also had a series of articles on the matter as well:
- The Overwhelming Wave That Makes Us Procrastinate
- Top 10 Motivation Boosters and Procrastination Killers
- Find Like-Minded Souls to Treat "Type 2 Procrastination"
- The Procrastination Test Finds Your "Procrastination Hotspots"
- Top 10 Ways Your Brain Is Sabotaging You (and How to Beat It)
So I'm gonna try to keep up this blog a little better with a few more posts. At a minimum, you can subscribe to the CM News Feed where I aggregate articles I find around the interwebs for y'all to get your daily dose of goodness.
