New look, what do you think?

Angela van SonBlog9 Comments

I would have loved to procrastinate on publishing the new look of my blog. Somehow it’s scary to bring it out into the open, even though people have liked it in the design phase. You know what?

I hope you’re not seasick after watching this 🙂 Now why post such an imperfect video? It was an unprepared test of my camera, never meant to be seen by anybody but me.

I had a bad case of procrastination going on these last two months. A simple chore, that I normally like: sending invoices. I had no idea why this suddenly was in my procrastination zone. But it was.

Self care against procrastination

Procrastination CoachBlog, Feelings4 Comments

Lately I noticed all the productivity techniques in the world couldn’t help me. I just did NOT want to do what I had to do anymore. Not even the work I love (well, to be honest, except for coaching calls because I absolutely always like to coach). I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: listen to what your … Read More
