Writer’s note: this piece was submitted more than a week late. Of course it was.
There are few things that hold me back as much as my tendency to procrastinate. I don’t procrastinate because I am easily distracted (although my hours logged on to Twitter might disagree) or because I am disorganised (I was once an assistant to one of the most demanding people on the planet; google it). If I’m truly honest with myself, I mostly procrastinate when the task in hand involves spending money. And I procrastinate because the idea of starting [insert task here] makes me anxious and so I would rather not think about it. Ever. Thank you very much. Goodbye.
