The designer's guide to beating procrastination

If you're faced with a new task and don't know how or where to begin, this new book The Art of Getting Started by self-professed procrastinator Lee Crutchley may just be the solution.

By his own admission, for a long as he can remember, illustrator Lee Crutchley has had trouble starting things, which is why he developed this brilliant new book The Art of Getting Started.

Crutchley's friendly style invites readers to carry out various fill-in, drawing, writing and list-making tasks, all with the aim of beating creative block. The book is also full of inspirational quotes and tips on overcoming procrastination and anything else that might be holding you back.

This simple little book is strangely addictive. After following just a few of Crutchley's instructions, we quickly found ourselves wondering what he'd suggest next. There's a brilliant injection of humour to these fun and useful exercises, making this book a thoroughly enjoyable, not to mention helpful, resource.
