Productivity may be the shiny lure ambitious people chase after, but creativity’s lasting impact is the ultimate catch.
An interesting fact I recently learned is Margaret Atwood is a chronic procrastinator. In a recent interview, the celebrated author of The Handmaid’s Tale told psychologist Adam Grant that she often avoids writing by doing laundry, scrolling the news, and even watching Captain Underpants. Atwood also says she considers herself lazy. But since 1967, she’s published dozens of award-winning novels, short fiction and poetry collections, children’s books, graphic novels, and non-fiction books.
