25 procrastination quotes that you’ll look at ‘later’
Procrastination in my opinion is the number one killer of dreams.
How many times have you heard someone say “I’ll do it later”.
I can recall numerous times I’ve heard people talk about what they’re going to do and sadly that day never comes.
So many of us talk the talk, but how many of us really walk the walk?
The key is just to get started.
This applies to absolutely anything in life, if we just take the first step and get going we’re already halfway there.
The amount of time we spend worrying about getting something done that we know we have to do, is more than likely using more energy than what it would take to complete the actual task at hand.
Procrastination: Is the enemy of progress.
Below are 25 procrastination quotes that I believe will open your eyes up to the detrimental effects this disease can have on us:
“Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.”
“You may delay, but time will not, and lost time is never found again.”
“If it weren’t for the last minute, nothing would get done.”
Rita Mae Brown
“You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.”
“Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday.”
“Nothing happens until something moves”
“Procrastination is the bad habit of putting of until the day after tomorrow what should have been done the day before yesterday.”
“A year from now you may wish you had started today.”
“Time is an equal opportunity employer. Each human being has exactly the same number of hours and minutes every day. Rich people can’t buy more hours. Scientists can’t invent new minutes. And you can’t save time to spend it on another day. Even so, time is amazingly fair and forgiving. No matter how much time you’ve wasted in the past, you still have an entire tomorrow.”
“The best way to get something done is to begin.”
“One of these days, is none of these days.”
“How soon not now, becomes never.”
“In delay there lies no plenty.”
“Tomorrow is often the busiest day of the week.”
“Procrastination is like masturbation. At first it feels good, but in the end you’re only screwing yourself.”
“If you want to make an easy job seem mighty hard, just keep putting off doing it.”
“In a moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing to do, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.”
“Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.”
“To think too long about doing a thing often becomes its undoing.”
“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.”
“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.”
“When you have to make a choice and don’t make it, that in itself is a choice.”
“Procrastination is opportunity’s assassin”
“Don’t fool yourself that important things can be put off till tomorrow; they can be put off forever, or not at all.”
“Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task.”
