It's time to begin the countdown until the release of Lichtenbergianism: procrastination as a creative strategy, the book that will teach you everything you need to know, not only about why you're not Mozart but also why you don't need to be.
Why didn't we start with a good hearty 10? Because I didn't think of this until last night. Now hush and let's begin our review of the NINE PRECEPTS. (See, it's still tidy!)
TASK AVOIDANCE is job #1 in Lichtenbergianism, and I cannot stress enough how important it is to not do the thing. Put it off. Cras melior est, as members of the Lichtenbergian Society say.
This is the crux of the matter, isn't it? You think that it takes enormous effort and rigorous commitment to create. Pffft: of course it does. But that's no reason to get all busy and do it all today, is it?
So how do you use procrastination to propel your art?
To find out how, BUY THE BOOK ON NOVEMBER 17! (See how this is going to work?)
