In this video, Karla McLaren introduces two perfectly acceptable ways that people work with their anxiety, based on the work of Dr. Mary Lamia in her book What Motivates Getting Things Done.
Dr. Lamia calls these two styles task-oriented and deadline-driven (which is also referred to as procrastination).
Both ways of working with anxiety are valuable and necessary, and neither is better or worse than the other. However, procrastinators are often seen as unmotivated, even though they get their work done.
Karla brings procrastination out of the shadows and treats it as a valuable companion to the work of anxiety. Thank you, procrastination!
