Warming up or procrastinating?
It’s your choice
Like for the rock-stars, a warm up act can be good. A good warm up act gets the main act and the audience in the mood for a great performance.
If you’re working on your own big performance it’s a good idea to warm up, a little stretching or a quick jog around the track. Or a few Blog posts and Tweets to warm up before working on the serious article or a new book. (This is me, doing that.)
BUT, be careful you’re not procrastinating. Stalling until you feel like you’re “in the mood” for it. Maybe it’s better to just “Do it!”
Warm up by getting started. Set a time to get going, when the bell rings or the puck drops.
Remember, the vacuuming and the laundry are not urgent! Re-organizing your files and cleaning up your junk mail, that’s procrastinating. They need to be done and done right, but not RIGHT NOW!
Make a distinction, are you warming up for the main act or postponing the important stuff with very poor excuses?
Be better. Do better.
