The Power of Doing Nothing
‘Choose to do nothing, or write’ -Neil Gaiman. Words to live by. This particular part of Tim Ferriss’ recent podcast really struck me.
The basic premise is this: give yourself the permission to only do two things; 1) nothing, or 2) the thing you set out to do originally, in Neil Gaiman’s case, write.
According to Gaiman, doing nothing quickly gets boring, and writing is so much more fun than doing nothing.
Procrastination is a bitch, and if you’re like me, you’re really good at doing it. It takes a lot to get to work, and I feel this advice will surely serve us procrastinators well.
