Quote for the Day – Procrastination

Hey Tech lead,

It’s possible that right now you’re putting off doing some of the non-technical tasks you need to do. Maybe it’s some of the “squishier” people conversations or generally shying away from what I call leadership opportunities. Procrastination is usually because you don’t feel confident doing things you’re just not competent at yet.

If that’s what going on for you today, then here’s your quote:

Turning pro is a mindset. If we are struggling with fear, self-sabotage, procrastination, self-doubt, etc., the problem is, we’re thinking like amateurs. Amateurs don’t show up. Amateurs crap out. Amateurs let adversity defeat them. The pro thinks differently. He shows up, he does his work, he keeps on truckin’, no matter what.

-Steven Pressfield

Have an awesome Thursday tech leads!
