Stuck in dreamland imagining what it will be like when you finally write that novel, create that painting, or build the next wonder of the world? Apparently, a lot of us are sitting there right beside you finding a million creative ways to procrastinate so we don’t have to leave dreamland and do the work.
If you need to find out how to stop procrastinating, then procrastinate just a little longer by reading any or all of these books:
The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Creative Battle by Stephen Pressfield
Do the Work by Stephen Pressfield
Poke the Box [“…a manifesto about starting.”] by Seth Godin
You Are a Writer (So Start Acting Like One) by Jeff Goins
Forty-eight Days to the Work You Love by Dan Miller
Imagine: How Creativity Works by Jonah Leher [I guess you should take the colon out of the title on this one. It’s been pulled from the shelves, so you’ll either have to find a copy that didn’t get recalled or just imagine what might have been inside.]
I don’t know if I ashamed or proud to say I’ve read all of these books except for Start, so I can tell you with certainty that these books will help you achieve your goal–if that goal is to procrastinate just a little longer.
