Ridiculously cynical to say it I know, but the advice in the article could be boiled down to: “to beat procrastination, do the thing instead of not doing it”. Ahem. […] thanks to Matt for […] it feels to me that underlying that interpretation of procrastination is self-judgement … which is a poor point of departure what if we were to turn that mentality around and relate to procrastination as information and intuitive guidance? maybe it is telling us not to do this task? or to do it in a different way? or to relate to it in a different way? or to wait … until we relate to it in a different way? do we really need to “get ourselves to do things?” … if you do things you like to do / believe in / want to see in the world … can you stop stop yourself from doing them? is there a logical (or other) reason to embrace inspiration (as intuitive guidance saying “yes”) but reject procrastination (as intuituve guidance saying “no”)?
