Procrastination: the act or habit of putting off or delaying; especially something requiring immediate attention. The act of willfully delaying the doing of something that should be done.
The hand of the diligent will rule, but the slack hand will be put to forced labor.– Proverbs 12:24
YOU SAID YOU WANTED: (allegedly)
- A promotion. . . but won’t get to work on time.
- To get rich. . . but you’re in the bed.
- To start a company. . . but you’re laying on the couch.
- A healthy relationship. . . but you don’t want to listen to your spouse.
- A clean home. . . you won’t do the dishes.
- Your kids to do well in school. . . but you’re too tired to help them succeed.
You desire all these things, yet lack the willpower to produce a glimpse of effort. You could stop being lazy, but you’re too lazy to do it.
Only hard work yields riches. The display of dedication and being uncomfortable spawns accomplishment.
There is not a soul that accomplished their dreams being lethargic. Never put off what you can do today. Convincing yourself you will do it tomorrow is what you said yesterday.
Nothing comes to a sleeper aside from a dream and flourishment belongs to the assiduous.
The only antidote for procrastination is action.
