Go Easy on Yourself.

Go Easy on Yourself.</p

Anxiety is a major cause of procrastination. You feel the upcoming work will be unpleasant, so you find a way to distract yourself to get out of it.

Sometimes this anxiety can come from the standard you expect from yourself. You want to write a brilliant essay but have no ideas. 

“I’m just going to show up” is something you can even write down on a post it before you start, reminding you that what matters is giving yourself space to focus, rather than reaching arbitrary performance standards.
