Trying to be (un)productive

So I made a new blog… again. This is like the nth time I’ve made one and I’m not sorry. For me, each blog has a certain theme, a certain personality I’d like to inject but never got around to fully form it (except for my main blog, that is).

For the nth time too, I’m procrastinating. It has been my shadow. Procrastinating is like running… in circles. You run and when you face a hurdle, you try to maneuver around it and continue running away, pretending everything is/will be okay. Eventually, you’ll face it again and you’ll do the same thing twice until it becomes a vicious cycle.

Procrastinating is something we secretly wish deep deep down us. You know you should avoid it like plague yet you still do it. Why? Because we avoid hardwork. Because hardwork is ugly, scary. Who would want that? We’re too lazy or sometimes scared to battle the resistance, to face the enemy.

Is there a way to battle procrastination when the last and only boss is yourself?

Mine is to face it head-on. That’s the only way I could think of. Fighting the resistance in doing things in small doses is the first step. Sometimes when we actually try doing things, we’ll realize the it isn’t so bad at all so we continue. There are times when I get competitive against other people’s blog posts (lol competing on a person you haven’t met and who doesn’t know you exist). Like this blogger finishes a series I happen to be reading/playing, I’ll be pumped up to plow through it. These are my pathetic attempts of combating procrastination. They are not really good advices but they aren’t so bad too. At least, I’m doing something. I’m procrastinating procrastination.
