Procrastination, is it all bad?

Procrastination, the art of putting what you should be doing off in favour of doing something unplanned and often not needed.

This is something that I suffer with quite often and sure you all do too. Be it taking a few minutes away from writing the next gripping scene to vacantly starring out of the window or start writing a blog post on procrastination 😀

It got me thinking, we always associate procrastination with a negative impact, but what if it can be used positively?

So I started to take a different approach and for every time I began to find myself drifting away from what I was supposed to be doing, I consulted the list of many jobs and began working on something else for a while, making a dent in that. After a while I started to notice that the time spent away from writing my next story was now being focused in on the multitude of other tasks I had to do.

It transpires that taking a moment or two away from what you’re doing can be hugely beneficial and positive.

So why not give it a go, the next time you find your mind wandering, consult your lists and work on something else for a bit.

Do you suffer from procrastination? How do you deal with it?
