especially if it is something that will require a lot of money or time,
is to start by breaking your task or goal into very small pieces.
And, each small piece you finish not only moves you forward but
shows you that what once seemed to doom high over your head
is being accomplished one step at a time.
Byron Pulsifer, Take Action Don't Procrastinate

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
Whatever form your procrastination comes in, learn to identify it, root it, and kick it out!
Jim Howard, Clarity - Getting More Done in 3 Days
Putting things off is the biggest waste of life: it snatches away each day as it
comes, and denies us the present by promising the future.
The greatest obstacle to living is expectancy, which hangs upon tomorrow,
and loses today. You are arranging what lies in Fortune's control,
and abandoning what lies in yours. What are you looking at?
To what goal are you straining? The whole future lies in uncertainty:
Seneca Quotes |
We shall never have more time. We have, and have always had,
all the time there is. No object is served in waiting until next week
or even until tomorrow. Keep going day in and day out. Concentrate
on something useful. Having decided to achieve a task, achieve it at all costs.
The appropriate definition of procrastination is the behavior of delaying
or postponing something that needs to be completed (i.e. putting things off)
despite knowing it will have a negative consequence.
Nancy Morris, Procrastinate Now: Rethinking Time Management
Quotes about Overcoming |
Procrastination may not take up a lot of effort physically but
without you knowing it, it takes over the mind.
Stephen Hall, Self Discipline Secrets
One early observation I made was how habitual procrastinators are generally
impatient - due to their desire for instant results... their minds reconstruct
the tasks they donít want to deal with, into negative scenarios -
each accompanied by logical explanations and predictions for why those
tasks couldn't possibly be accomplished.
David Parker, The More You Do The Better You Feel: How to Overcome Procrastination and Live a Happier Life

A Riddle |
"Once you've visualized all the "painful" and "negative" things that are happening to you because of your
inability to act on what's wrong, you will start doing the right thing."
Joseph Help, Stop Procrastinating
"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,
it is much easier to procrastinate and live on the 'someday I'll' philosophy."
Life is way too short.
Do things as they come to you,
Live your life like a high-speed sport.

There is no denying that some of us are more prone to procrastination

changing our perceptions or actions. It just means that some of us will
need to work at it that little bit harder than others.

It also entails the lack of motivation to carry out a task optimally until
a certain deadline. People that resort to procrastination tend to postpone
their work and find every reason to delay a project until the last minute.
Procrastination reduces the potential of productivity in individuals
and renders hastiness, which might be detrimental to the output of a
work process. People mistake procrastination with laziness because
of their common characteristics.

Take Action Don't Procrastinate |
Procrastination is a mindset devoid of the anticipation of enjoying
working through a task or project. Procrastination is more a thief of life,
enjoyment, or accomplishment than it is about laziness.
Like conquering fear through action so it is that procrastination
is defeated once action begins.
"Procrastination is the persistent practice of telling oneself that a
task(s) should not, does not, or cannot be performed now.
In plain English, it simply means: putting off a task beyond
the timeframe in which should or could be performed."
K. B. Bryson, Overcoming Procrastination
"Procrastination is the reason you have not yet realized your true
capacities, the reason you have not yet optimized your financial opportunities,
the reason your grades are not all A's, and most definitely the reason you
have not yet attained your dream car of dream house."
