It’s my personal cross and I suspect it’s also carried by a significant portion of the population. Procrastination can come in many forms. I’m an expert at finding excuses. I’m too busy, it’s too cold, I can wait until tomorrow, I need to set aside a specific block of time, and I don’t have anyone to help me. I could fill this page. If you need an excuse call me I’m sure I have one that will fit your needs.
I believe it was Sir Isaac Newton that proved through mathematics that it takes more energy to initiate the movement of a mass than to continue the movement once underway. Drop the “m” in mass and that pretty well describes procrastination. His math does not cover the amount of energy consumed by the procrastinator in avoiding the initial movement.
My personal photography is not immune from this affliction. Magazine assignments and commercial work are no problem. Someone is holding a gun to my head, so to speak. But getting my “mass” moving for other photo work can, at times, be a struggle.
