Procrastination Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Procrastination

1.
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.
Waitley, Denis

The average American worker has fifty interruptions a day, of which seventy percent have nothing to do with work.
Deming, W. Edwards

5.
We all sorely complain of the shortness of time, and yet have much more than we know what to do with. Our lives are either spent in doing nothing at all, or in doing nothing to the purpose, or in doing nothing that we ought to do. We are always complaining that our days are few, and acting as though there would be no end of them.
Seneca

6.
When a man does a household job, he goes through three periods: contemplating how it will be done; contemplating when it will be done; and contemplating.
Cox, Marcelene

7.
Don't wait for extraordinary circumstance to do good; try to use ordinary situations.
Richter, Charles

8.
Don't wait for someone to take you under their wing. Find a good wing and climb up underneath it.

How soon not now, becomes never.

Hill, Napoleon

12.
There is nothing so fatal to character as half finished tasks.
George, David Lloyd

13.
During a very busy life I have often been asked, How did you manage to do it all? The answer is very simple. It is because I did everything promptly.
Tangye, Richard

Don't put off till tomorrow what can be enjoyed today.
Billings, Josh

15.
Manana is often the busiest day of the week.
Proverb, Spanish

16.
Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted, the indifference of those who should have known better, the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most, that has made it possible for evil to triumph.
Selassie, Haile

17.
He who begins and does not finish loves their pains.
Proverb

Tear thyself from delay.

Delay is the deadliest form of denial.
Parkinson, C. Northcote

22.
He who waits upon fortune is never sure of dinner.
Franklin, Benjamin

23.
The truth is that we live out our lives putting off all that can be put off; perhaps we all know deep down that we are immortal and that sooner or later all men will do and know all things.
Borges, Jorge Luis

24.
Procrastination is my sin. It brings me naught but sorrow. I know that I should stop it. In fact, I will--tomorrow!
Pitzer, Gloria

25.
He who awaits much can expect little.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

26.
Elijah went before the people and said, How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him. But the people said nothing. [1 Kings 18:21]
Bible

27.
If you procrastinate when faced with a big difficult problem... break the problem into parts, and handle one part at a time.
Collier, Robert

32.
There are those of us who are always about to live. We are waiting until things change, until there is more time, until we are less tired, until we get a promotion, until we settle down -- until, until, until. It always seems as if there is some major event that must occur in our lives before we begin living.
