Happy Tuesday! People procrastinate; it’s a given. But as actors, we don’t have a boss or supervisor telling us what to do. We rely on ourselves to make sure our headshots are online, our reels are edited, and our target list is made.
Being an actor is tough work, so naturally sometimes… we might want to put things off. I’ve previously spoken on how to beat procrastination, but today I’m diving deeper and teaching you 5 simple reasons we tend to put certain tasks off, even when we know they need to get done.
Plus there’s a special bonus (read: FREE) at the end of this week’s episode that you do NOT want to miss! So watch below!
