On February 13, 2017 I published Episode 13 of Up and to the Right… I should have known that the 13th episode published on the 13th day of the month was a bad omen.

Anyway, after Episode 13 I started planning...

and stopped producing...

...and it took over a year for me to get back on track!

In episode 21 of up and to the right we’ll:

  • put off talking about Plancrastination!
  • We’ll avoid talking about what it is.
  • We’ll mindlessly scroll through our social media feed instead of discussing why we plancrastinate.
  • Finally, we’ll do a lot of online research enabling us to sidestep what we can do to avoid it.

What is Plancrastination?

Reasons we Plancrastinate

  • Fear
  • Loathing
  • Distraction
  • The Momentum of Inaction

Breaking the Cycle

  • ID the Roadblock
  • Give Yourself a Time Limit (not a deadline)
  • ID the Next Logical Step
