Episode 118: Are You a Productive Procrastinator?

Game On Girlfriend Ep118

Burnout is a real thing! I mean, sometimes it can feel like, “Are you freaking kidding me?!” There’s so much to get done!

I mean, if you’re focused and passionate, the shiny ball syndrome can feel real! But how can you feel fulfilled while you do this, without feeling like you’re crazy?

It’s not easy to keep playing in the messy part of life —that space where you don’t know what’s going to happen, where sometimes things work and sometimes they don’t. The part when you just want to scream, “Can’t I just be successful already?”

Today’s guest is Amber Hawley.

She’s a licensed therapist, multiple biz owner and former tech industry drop out who works with high-achieving, easily distracted entrepreneurs with mindset & strategies to stop suffering for success. 

As host of the Easily Distracted Entrepreneur podcast, she supports ADHD {and ADHD-ish} business owners who live in Distraction City to overcome shiny object syndrome.

You’re going to get a lot out of this episode because Amber dives in deep about what burnout is, what the signs are, and how you can move through burnout faster and with less pain.

Oh, and by the way, burnout is real and it’s hard. And this week’s episode will not only help you feel normal about that, it will help you deal with it, too.

Some things I’d love for you to listen for in today’s episode:

  • The terms “visual accountability” and “bike shedding” - OMG, these phrases are so new to me and they’re so good.... really helpful for framing our own behavior.


  • And the number one takeaway for me today is “productive procrastination.” I mean, did you just feel that? Logo redesign for the 300th time? Redoing your website again? Yeah … that’s productive procrastination!
