Edward Young penned these words in the 1600’s and it is so true! I cannot imagine how much time I have wasted doing the things that were inconsequential, while putting off what had to be done…whether it be a term paper, waking up on time for class, (or now for work), or getting the project deadline completed. I am the chief offender when it comes to procrastinating.
On “A Minute with Maxwell,” the Word of the Day was “PROCRASTINATION,” I could not wait to hear what John Maxwell had to say on the topic. Do you know it took me 2 days to watch it?? Seriously, I put off watching a 60 second message on Procrastination! I jest about this, but he made a great point, one which I want to be true of my life! John Maxwell said:
“What I learned about Procrastination is very simple, it never works, and that there is never a convenient moment…People that are highly successful have disciplined themselves and they have conquered the habit of procrastination and they know the power of initiating. Do it now! Let that be your mantra!”
This “Thought of the Day” is really for me…highly successful people do not procrastinate! What will you do different today?
