“The most pernicious aspect of procrastination is that it can become a habit. We don’t just put off our lives today; we put them off till our deathbed. Never forget: This very moment, we can change our lives. There never was a moment, and never will be, when we are without the power to alter our destiny.” ~ Steven Pressfield, The War of Art
“Look in your own heart. Unless I’m crazy, right now a still small voice is piping up, telling you as it has ten thousand times, the calling that is yours and yours alone. You know it. No one has to tell you. And unless I’m crazy, you’re no closer to taking action on it than you were yesterday or will be tomorrow. You think Resistance isn’t real? Resistance will bury you.” ~ Steven Pressfield, The War of Art
“Is it really so difficult to do what must be done? It’s not difficult at all, when you stop fighting against it. One little step will get you started, and once you’re started, you become interested and invested. Once you’re started, momentum begins to give you a push that becomes stronger with each effort. Instead of putting off what you know must be done, what if you could somehow get yourself to be positively enthusiastic about it? You absolutely can, because you can choose how you wish to feel about anything.The genuine satisfaction in your life comes when you know you’re making a difference. And whatever it is in your world that must be done is your opportunity to make that difference. Go beyond intending, go beyond planning, go beyond wishing, and go beyond saying you need to get it done. Dive in, go to work, make something happen and be the positive, dynamic difference that makes you feel alive.” ~ Ralph Marston
“Step by step, you make your way forward. That’s why practices such as daily writing exercises or keeping a daily blog can be so helpful. You see yourself do the work, which shows you that you can do the work. Progress is reassuring and inspiring; panic and then despair set in when you find yourself getting nothing done day after day. One of the painful ironies of work life is that the anxiety of procrastination often makes people even less likely to buckle down in the future.” ~ Gretchen Rubin
“It’s the task that’s never started that’s more tiresome.” ~ Gretchen Rubin
“A procrastinator is a thief of his or her own time.” ~ Jhoon Rhee
“The pain of discipline weighs ounces whereas the pain of regret weighs tons.” ~ Jim Rohn
“Remember, it’s more mentally tiring to think about what has to be done, and all the things that might go wrong, than it is to physically do the job.” ~ Jack Canfield
“Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Bill Gates, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.” ~ Unknown
“Waiting to develop courage is just another form of procrastination. The most successful people take action while they’re afraid!” ~ Unknown
“If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.” ~ Bruce Lee
“A year from now you may wish you had started today” ~ Karen Lamb
“Do you know what happens when you give a procrastinator a good idea? Nothing!” ~ Donald Gardner
“Procrastination is attitude’s natural assassin . There’s nothing so fatiguing as an uncompleted task” ~ William James
“Tomorrow is often the busiest day of the week.” ~ Spanish Proverb
