Procrastination is a thief of time. 

Time wasted is existence; used is life. -Edward Young

The only difference between success and failure is the ability to take action.

-Alexander Graham Bell

If you have goals and procrastination you have nothing. If you have goals and you take action, you will have anything you want. -Thomas J Vilord

 

KNOW WHY YOU PROCRASTINATE

Avoidance

The false narrative that you function better behind

Subconscious self-sabotage

Exaggeration of how hard something will be (lack of self-concept of how good you are)

Lack of positive self-concept of your own capabilities 

 

WHAT ARE YOU PUTTING OFF?

What are you avoiding?

What will you regret not starting sooner?

We put off little things and big things.

Decide to be the kind of person who doesn’t put things off.

Because, well, putting things off is so, well, average.

And you’re not average. 

Putting off your health changes?

Putting off your personal development?

Putting off investing in yourself?

Putting off budgeting?

Putting off starting your book?

Putting off making a commitment?

Putting off a big decision?

Putting off your workouts?

Putting off laundry?

Putting off volunteering?

Putting off being generous?
