The article on 99U, Stop Doing The False Hustle, made me realize how I crowd myself with stuff as a procrastinating tactic. Fully aware that the “BIG thing” looms while I do the "other." I work on poems or short story or a business project instead of the largest task of finishing edits to get my book out. Worst yet, I do housework or shop, make phone calls, etc., but I find that in doing outlier tasks I meditate and plan in a distracted state. However, these “delayers” let fear invade and soon the voice of negativity gets me down.
