Innocent procrastination

Sometimes our procrastination is magnificently overt. When this is the case it's much easier to fix owing to the fact we know outright that it’s happening. 

But much more dangerous are the types of procrastination that at first glance actually seem productive. Mine is reading. I justify it to myself as learning or research. But really, I’m just avoiding the work - probably out of fear. I’ve already done enough research and I’ve already learned enough about a certain topic to start that project.  

There're ways to fix this: good habits, an accountability partner, deadlines… The hardest part is - as ever - noticing the behaviour in the first place. 

How do you procrastinate?
