I M O when learning something new like a technique or process, and something that appears to be procrastination happens, it isn’t –especially with confident individuals.
I saw this special on Nat Geo that validated the term “sleeping on a problem”, where they verified that humans continuously work on pending problems in their sleep. I think that the symptoms of procrastinating could be our brains subconsciously saying “wait wait wait I haven’t completely figured out how to do it yet.”, and moments of breakthrough happen when one is actually ready to do the task.
to illustrate; when Kimpo first got his Moleskine, he was complaining that he couldn’t start writing, and then weeks later the writings came “in a deluge”. he had a good term pala for the thing I’m trying to identify, he called it a hump.
