“Procrastination”


Procrastination “Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task.”  ~William James 

Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday.  ~Don Marquis 

Every duty which is bidden to wait returns with seven fresh duties at its back.  ~Charles Kingsley 

The easiest thing to do – is nothing.  No one can make you do what it isn’t in your heart to do.  Second after second, minute after minute, hour after hour, day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year…get the picture?  Time too has a dance card that’s quite full.  She will not wait for you to take her hand.  Trust that she has other suitors.  There is too much putting off until tomorrow what you can do today.  How often have you put off your dreams, your vacation, your children, your spouse…yourself?  Most among us are only dedicated to the wrong things.  We habitually get up and pour ourselves the huge cup of negativity we’ve been brewing all night.  Then first thing in the morning, after a long night of having the audacity to dream, we stamp it out with a hot cup of pessimism flavored with excuses.  It is not enough to dream it.  Dreaming is the beginning of the process, but in order to make things tangible you have to follow through by making the steps toward obtaining it.  The only way a flower grows is when it is nurtured and fed.  Water your dream garden; in the end, you’ll have your pick of dreams…weed out procrastination or it will become your nightmare…
