Procrastination, Panic and Self-doubt, a Wasted Time?

I'm a lazy girl today. I have done almost nothing unless you count browsing lovely blogs as a job of collecting inspirations and knowledge. I actually think I do :) This reminds me of a book I'm reading, Craft Inc. It says :
You have to respect that the process isn't always necessarily "productive" or tidy in the usual sense. I've learned to accept that what sometimes feels or looks like wasted time--procrastination, panic or self-doubt--is really an integral and important phase of the design process for me. It helps to accept it and know it's coming, or even build time for it into the schedule. ---Denyse Schmidt / Quilts
I was so happy when I first read this part. It's like an excuse but it's so true. I don't think there's any artists in this world who don't procrastinate, panic or stuck in their own self-doubt. I always feel guilty if I don't have some tangible things to prove that I'm working. So, the idea of accepting and integrating procrastination, panic and self-doubt into our schedule is very interesting to me. We all have to go through this kind of feelings every now and then anyway, how about living with it (for a while), don't put too much pressure on ourselves and move on?

Now I think I'm procrastinating but I also know that in a few minutes I will sit down and do some works for today. That sounds reassuring somehow :)
