Procrastinator’s guilt in opium
I find the following paragraph, from here, extremely depressing:
Like the English Romantic poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge, we live our lives with regret for what we have not done — or have done imperfectly — instead of taking satisfaction with what we have done, such as, in Coleridge’s case, founding English Romanticism in his youth and producing, throughout his life, some of the best poetry and literary criticism ever composed, including his unfinished poem “Kubla Khan.” But that was not enough; always, there was some magnum opus that Coleridge should have been writing, that made every smaller project seem like failure, and that led him to seek refuge from procrastinator’s guilt in opium.
This is from a wonderful article, titled How to Procrastinate Like Leonardo da Vinci. I suggest you read it too. Do not put it off for later. OK?
