I’ve always struggled to focus on a task, I can’t put that down to any singular reason though because it covers both things I want to do and things I have to do, so it’s not just that I get bored as I previously thought because I procrastinate when I’m writing and that is purely what I want to do. I think that procrastination is key to being able to do, it’s the other side of the coin, the truth is that you can’t be ‘on’ all the time, if you try then you just end up wasting time and this is procrastination.
The important thing to recognise is that it is all part of the creative process and should be embraced. I try to use my procrastination from one task to propel me into another one, or to achieve or learn something. Even sitting and watching a film is something, as long as you’re not sat staring at the wall then you’re into something.
Keep at it.
