Nature journal finally caught up
“Procrastination is the bad habit of putting off until the day after tomorrow what should have been done the day before yesterday.”— Napoleon Hill
It’s the middle of May and I’m just now finished with April’s phenology wheel and nature journal page. I kept putting it off because with each day that passed, the job got bigger. Would take more time. Further and further behind and the inner critic screamed “YOU MIGHT AS WELL JUST QUIT!”
I sat with the resistance for a few days and searched for the reason why I wasn’t making the time to paint. 1. I’m “supposed” to be writing, and 2. I know if I start, I won’t want to stop.
I set a timer for 20 minutes and painted. An hour or so later, it was done. And I don’t remember hitting stop on the alarm.
Now I’m free to write.
If you’re struggling with juggling and tending to a project, try setting a timer and work on one thing.
