"Come down from the cliff-edge, love;
quit the dark-eyed desperation
and the bare-breasted heroics;
put simply, he's not worth it '
nor am I '
in fact, no man's love's worth dying for.
Put your harp to good use,
entrance a worthier lover,
school your giggling girls
and place your poems
where the Christians will not find them '
in remote sea caves
and the minds of young maidens."

NOT ACCEPTED THE JOURNAL FAVORITES!
This wonderful tumblr blog - fuckyeahillustrativeart.tumblr… - about stunning and mesmerizing illustrations, for pose references and gesture sketching - www.quickposes.com/ and figuresfordrawing.tumblr.com/ , an amazing journal about Supernatural - Salt & Burn Magazine and there is also a video where you can see my arms from 6:24 till 6:43 doing some textile stuff.
Not doing things in the last moment - still working on this problem.
Setting a timer - for better focus on one task. (I'm quite bad at multitasking) There is also a wonderful application - Focus booster - www.focusboosterapp.com/downlo… , that you can put on your desktop and track the time for better results.
Blocking time consuming websites - for certain time - StayFocusd and Citrus (chrome apps) - chrome.google.com/webstore/det… chrome.google.com/webstore/det… .
Listening to music, that helps to concentrate - favorite songs, soundtracks, coffee shop sounds - coffitivity.com/ and rain - www.rainymood.com/ .
Doing the things that you need to do - being persistent, just getting over lazyness and feeling of "not wanting to start" and the magic things will happen. And you will succeed.
These are some ways that have helped me and I hope this post is helpful for you too.
For me - I usually have no regrets for the time that I spend with my family or when I paint/draw, because those are the things that are the most meaningful for me. And that time is never wasted.
So, how do you deal with procrastination?
Have a wonderful week!
“One has to believe in what one is doing, one has to commit oneself inwardly, in order to do painting. Once obsessed, one ultimately carries it to the point of believing that one might change human beings through painting. But if one lacks passionate commitment, there is nothing left to do. Then it is best to leave it alone. For basically painting is total idiocy."/ Gerhard Richter
