In secondary school and in college and university, one thing was constant and consistent was my ability to procrastinate.
I liked being prepared and getting the work done in a timely manner, yet when crunch time came and I had to produce something, words would come flying out of my finger tips.
Unfortunately try to be as productive as I can, procrastination seems to follow my in my current post school situation. But there’s a change, whereas in school, I procrastinated by focusing on my interests e.g. Watching drama, sleeping etc. now that I’m working, I find that I’m doing work (which is good) but I’m not really focusing on developing my skills and creative process.
I often chalk it up to adjusting to a new environment and all that adaptation process but how long can I afford to adapt for.
It’s always at the back of my mind that in order to see results I have to put in work.
So right now I’m trying to navigate being productive at work and still having the energy to peruse my arts.
I know that it it won’t happen instantly and that some days I’ll just be to tired, but I hope to make more active (see the theme for the year?) progress in what I do.
Does anyone have any ideas or tips on what they do to make time and keep motivated?
