Percolating: It's all about the possibilities. I often hear the word "could" in my head. I could use the airbrush on that piece. I could write a blog post about procrastination. I could use pen and ink drawings for the book illustrations. I'm doing other things, but my head is in the game. I'm just waiting for the idea to formulate.
Procrastinating: It's all about the frustration level. I often hear the word "should" in my head. I should get to my studio. I should work on that blog post. I should work on those illustrations for the book. I'm in avoidance. I'm doing anything but what I really want to be doing. Crazy, right? Maybe... Normal? Completely.
Percolating is fun. Procrastination isn't. Don't forget to give yourself permission to percolate; and if you procrastinate once in a while, don't beat on yourself. Take a small step to help yourself get going. I heard a procrastinator say once that she told herself she was only going to wash one glass out of a big mess in the kitchen. What happened? She did all the dishes, of course. The hardest part is starting. Make it a really small step.
