Procrastination is Not Laziness

David Cain at Raptitude:

… procrastinators tend to be people who have, for whatever reason, developed to perceive an unusually strong association between their performance and their value as a person. This makes failure or criticism disproportionately painful, which leads naturally to hesitancy when it comes to the prospect of doing anything that reflects their ability — which is pretty much everything.”

So much here is true for me. Sometimes, when I’m particularly hard on myself, I think I could have accomplished so much more.

And by “sometimes” I mean “often.” Maybe every day.
