Gimme a Minute: A Real-Talk Procrastination Webinar for Freelance Writers

January 26, 2023, 2:00 pm-3:00 pm ET

Freelance Life, Productivity, Running Your Business, Tips

Eat the frog. Make a list. Set a timer. Keep to a schedule. Break down tasks. Turn off distractions. Reward yourself.

Fail at all of the above, and start again tomorrow.

If you’ve read one or more books about procrastination, subscribed to a productivity newsletter, gobbled up blog posts that offer time-saving or -organizing advice, and still have problems with procrastination, this workshop is for you. First, we’ll consider the reasons for procrastination (not all of them are bad!), borrowing from recent research on neurodiversity. Then, we’ll look at ways to trick your natural process, including how to incorporate necessary procrastination.

Join us from 2-3 pm ET on Thursday, January 26, to kick off good habits for 2023.
