Procrastiworking by Jessica Hische at New Adventures
New Adventures was a fantastic conference, but my favourite talk of all was Jessica’s – who had come “dressed as the internet” in her crazy leggings with photos of cats all over them…seriously!
The subject of her talk was called Procrastiworking – which is a word she coined for the work you do (or feeling like doing) while putting off the work you don’t feel like doing. Jessica is a big promotor of procrastiworking, and most of her best projects have come from putting off normal client work. She feels that the work you do while procrastinating is probably the work you should be doing for the rest of your life, which is something I really, really agree with. Most of our best work is often done in our own side projects!
