You see, procrastinators tend to be people who have, for whatever reason, developed to perceive an unusually strong association between their performance and their value as a person. This makes failure or criticism disproportionately painful, which leads naturally to hesitancy when it comes to the prospect of doing anything that reflects their ability — which is pretty much everything."
I’ve posted this before but I’m posting it again because it’s just so important and really gets at the heart of why so much advice about procrastination, much of it targeted at people who have ADHD but are just considered “lazy,” fails. Before you can tell someone to “just do it already,” you need to think about the reasons they’re NOT doing it, like all the meanings they’ve attached to vague terms like “success” and “failure.”
I’m actually really irritated now because a shit ton of tumblr NOW THINKS that changing the file format to JPEG (of all formats) will make your prints come out better.
I keep looking through all of these reblogs and clueless artists are going to have shitty quality prints because they were misinformed as to what actually matters, which is mode and dpi, NOT just simply file format (which should still be either .png or .tiff or something else loss-less).
I TOLD YOU NOT TO SAVE AS JPEG
do you have those friends on tumblr
that you pretty much never talk to
but you follow them and they follow you
and whenever you see them on your dash
it just makes you smile and you’re so happy they’re there
and yet you’ve still barely spoken to one another
because i have a few of those
and i love you to bits okay
