    Hey Jessica, Inspired by your side projects, I have been doing a lot of side projects as well for the past year. Your speech about procrastiworking impacted me greatly. I always find myself procrastinate on something by doing other things, and your speech made me change those into side projects. my unfinished side projects:

    But my biggest struggle is still PROCRASTINATION! I would work on them passionately for days or weeks, then I started to lose the momentum and procrastinate on them as well.

    I read you have many unfinished projects, wondering what makes them unfinished, and how do you make yourself pick them up again? What is your advice to people who do have procrastination problem?

      I try to always make sure I have a lot of projects in the works—be they client projects, personal projects, etc. I only find myself TRULY procrastinating when I don't have another project to work on. I also forgive myself if I start something and really have no desire to finish it whatsoever. Generally, as long as I make sure whatever I'm working on could be completed in under a week if it totally took over my life, I have an easier time completing it.
