On My Procrastination With Blogging

To be honest, I’m scared of commiting content to the Internet. As a recovering perfectionist, I’m always scared to reveal the parts of me that are less than perfect. When I think of a blog entry, I think it needs to be fleshed out and insightful and fulfilling. But as Neil Fiore points out in The Now Habit, when we think about the final version of a project, we discredit all the dirty, imperfect work that has to go in to the steps of getting there. And this mental block causes us to procrastinate.

So this paragraph is my first small dirty imperfect step in writing a blog.

Inspired by the tiny “Flowers make a nice gift” article that made it to the front page of Hacker News yesterday.
