    Procrastinating Again? How to Kick the Habit

    I know it's a bit counter productive to post in the LOUNGE about procrastination but I figured it might help some people.

    Facts help me break out of procrastinating.

    The fact that for every day I'm not drawing 12,000 other artists are busting their ass to better themselves.

    The fact that for every day I'm not drawing I'm missing a potential window for an interview, project or freelance gig.

    The fact that if I were to ever keep procrastinating, this will all remain a hobby, not a career.

    And that's a fact.
