The Lizard Brain – Excuses For Late Submission

Updated on August 8, 2019 in Debates, Ideas and Discussion 2019

Can’t complete your assignment before the deadline? Blame it on the lizard brain. Can’t focus? Yes, it is the lizard brain’s fault. Confucius once said: “Journey of a thousand miles begin with a single step.” Stop staring at the blank sheet of paper, the first line will lead to the second line and thereafter.

Bestselling author and entrepreneur Seth Godin outlines a common creative affliction: sabotaging our projects just before we show them to the world. Godin targets our “lizard brain” as the source of these primal doubts, and implores us to “thrash at the beginning” of projects so that we can ship on time and on budget.
