Do you know what avoidance and procrastination are good for?
Getting you off the hook.
If you don't produce anything - a result of some sort - people can't count on you and so you can't let them down either, nor can they criticise you, and you can't fail because you didn't even try.
Wonderful escape technique!
Except, you don't feel wonderful, do you?
You don't love avoiding and procrastinating - at least, not once the addictive rush of being off the hook wears off.
You want to produce.
You want people to be able to count on you.
You want to try and succeed.
Path A leads to comfort by avoiding risk and discomfort from living a dissatisfying life of not even trying.
Path B leads to comfort from being productive and creative and free, but discomfort due to the potential risk that people who don't matter might be unkind.
Until next time, take care, stay safe - and sane - and make kind choices!
