How to Fight Creative Time Wasting

I was going to write this earlier, but decided to work on another project first.  Then fresh emails beckoned.  Then I ate dinner.

I found every which way to do everything but the task at hand…even though I knew full well that I had to get it done. Combating these “creative time-wasters” is something ew need to work at every single day. Over at our sister site, FreelanceSwitch, Will Kenny gives us a few tips on how to do just that.

Fight Creative Time Wasting: Tips for Resourceful Time Wasters

But before you go, check out this video by Levni Yilmaz that takes creative time wasting to a whole other level.

    It was so funny. I guess it happens to many people.

    Awesome video. I especially enjoy the voice, it’s perfect when it comes to procrastination. He sounds exactly like a guy that needs to get his stuff done, but just can’t 🙂

    I can relate to this, especially when it comes to writing. Earlier, I always had to have the perfect writing environment before I started to write, even though I didn’t know what the perfect writing environment was 🙂
