Quotes about Life |
We procrastinate because the thing we are procrastinating
on is painful to us for various reasons, or at least not pleasurable enough
to override whatever other activity may be at hand.
Mike Buffington, Hacking Laziness
So what do we do? Anything. Something. So long as we just don't sit there. If we screw it up, start over. Try something else. If we wait until we've satisfied all the uncertainties, it may be too late.
The habit of always putting off an experience until you can afford it, or until the time is right, or until you know how to do it is one of the greatest burglars of joy. Be deliberate, but once you've made up your mind -jump in.
Charles R. Swindoll

"Procrastination is the fear of success. People procrastinate because they are afraid of the
success that they know will result if they move ahead now. Because success is heavy, carries a responsibility with it,

"Doing just a little bit during the time we have available puts you that much further ahead than if you took no action at all."
Byron Pulsifer, Take Action; Don't Procrastinate
"Never leave that till tomorrow which you can do today."
"Don't wait for someone to take you under their wing. Find a good wing and climb up underneath it."
