Stop Blaming Procrastination

Procrastination is not your enemy. It's not your fear of doing the work, your fear of failing, or your fear of finding out your big idea wasn’t as big as you thought it was.

Procrastination is not an evil, self-defeating force that plans to undermine your goals and ensure you never make them happen, fueled by its secret knowledge of how much you suck and don’t really have it in you.

Procrastination preserves your dreams. It works for you — it’s entirely on your side — fiercely defending your bright future. It loyally guards the ideas you hold most dear. It keeps them on a pedestal — pristine, full of hope and promise.

Procrastination is the guardian of your future. You love having a future where your dreams come true. So maybe it’s doing exactly what you asked it to do…

But if you make a dream come true, you get a new one!
