“Procrastination is my way of taking back control in a world that is beyond controlling.”

Procrastination is a privilege when we use it mindfully. In his talk for CreativeMornings/Richmond, Ace Callwood empowers us to see procrastination as a tool, without judgment or shame. And just like any tool, it can be harnessed to our advantage or our detriment. Procrastinating gives us a lens to understand that we can control what we can, and influence the variables of what we can’t control. Ace Callwood is a senior facilitator at Envoy and an entrepreneurship and innovation educator at Virginia Commonwealth University. Learn how to use this tool with intention with Callwood’s musings on procrastination
