Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity is buried.
Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.
Procrastination is a side effect of perfectionism. Afraid that we cannot do something perfectly, we hang back from trying at all. Often we call procrastination laziness, but it is not laziness. It is fear. As we learn to dismantle our perfectionism, we find ourselves free to move ahead. Our procrastination yields to baby steps in the direction of our dreams.
—Julia Cameron and Emma Lively
If you’re early, you’re on time. If you’re on time, you’re late.
Someday is not a day of the week.
One is daily annoyed by some little corner that needs clearing up and when by accident one at last is stirred to do the needful, one wonders that one should have stood the annoyance so long when such a little effort would have done away with it. Moral: When in doubt, do it.
--Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
The one thing worse than a quitter is the man who is afraid to start.
I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not spend my days trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.
