I struggle with being a procrastinator. I’ve become better at managing things to do over the years, but still often find myself in the “unproductive phase” as David Cain explains it in his excellent piece: How to get yourself to do things. Seriously, go read it.
When I read his post, it rings so many bells and it makes perfect sense. I probably should print his graphs and hang them on the wall as a constant reminder that the “productive phase” is never far away.
