How to Beat Procrastination

Grace Mendez: Procrastination and the fear of mistakes keeps us from a creative life.

To beat procrastination you must first figure out where your fear lives. No fear = creativity and freedom to explore.

The fear of mistakes is a common obstacle.

In my zentangle workshops I explain one of the principles: there are no mistakes. If you go in a direction that you did not intend, you go from there. Just like in life, there is no going back in time, no real do-overs (we don’t use erasers), we make adjustments and go from there. We look at this new direction as a new opportunity.

There is permission to be imperfect in our creativity.

Another procrastination obstacle that appears is lack of faith in abundance.

Know that you will have more:

  • time to create
  • canvas and paper,┬áink and paint, pencils and crayons …
  • ideas
