Regular readers of this blog will know that I hold Carl Richards in high esteem. His simple messages supported by drawings are always worth a look and a thought. This one is especially good. I seem to attract procrastinators (or perhaps they attract me), Carl’s words on the subject are most appropriate and I am happy to share.

“There’s something you want to do. Maybe even something you need to do. And you’re not doing it.
The reason you’re not doing it is because you’re hiding.
The reason you’re hiding is because there is work to be done, and that work is either scary, or hard, or boring, or all of the above.
So instead, you’re reading your eighteenth book of the year on time management, tweeting about the economy, and Instagramming motivational pictures.
(Actually, you’re reading your emails. Don’t ask me how I know.)
Might I make a suggestion?
All of those are places to hide.
I repeat: There’s something you want to do. Maybe even something you need to do. And you’re not doing it.
Stop procrastinating. Stop looking for a new trick, a new #hack.
Take all that time and put it into just getting the work done.
It’s that simple.”
