My Thoughts For the Month

"I'll do it tomorrow." That's a risky approach to time management, since we all know that tomorrow never comes. Think about it! By the time tomorrow arrives, it's already another today. Sometimes it's difficult to make that call or have that conversation or take that action whatever the situation maybe.

People rarely put off the fun and exciting things they like to do. It's always the dreaded thing that gets postponed or put on the back burner. The fact is that whatever it is that we don't handle today, will only be one day worse and more difficult to deal with tomorrow.

If you are punctual and do things on time or before time, the ability to remain consistent with your choices necessitates a lot of will-power. Not procrastinating requires prodigious values, self-discipline, and vigorous determination.  One who does not procrastinate will be more successful in life emotionally, physically and mentally.

An example of this proverb in modern day society would be: An employee who reports to work on time and does not adjourn doing things, will have an enhanced chance of being promoted than the ones who does procrastinate.  Life offers you many opportunities and we must seize them before they disappear into the midst of lost opportunities. Procrastination is our enemy as it is the stealer of time. By procrastinating, we are letting time slip through our fingers and doing nothing about it.

Procrastination is the thief of time because it steals away the beauty of what time brings us.  Procrastination is the thief of time meaning that someone who continually puts things off ultimately achieves little. Think about it, there is no time when you will have more time, as time never stops, never slows down, it’s always moving and once it’s gone its gone forever.

Whatever it is you're putting off, DO IT NOW!
