“Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.” -Picasso
It’s so easy to procrastinate. I personally struggle with this on a daily basis. It’s easy to put off tasks that I don’t particularly enjoy, because I assume I will have time to complete them later. As an independent writer and author, I don’t have anyone to tell me when articles or books are due except myself. I can shirk some of these responsibilities, because I don’t have anyone to answer to. But does this attitude generate a plan for success? Of course it doesn’t.
Motivating yourself can be hard sometimes, but motivation starts with desire. Desire comes from a place of wanting to achieve your goals. Keeping your dreams and aspirations in mind is one way to fight off feelings of procrastination. Even simple, everyday tasks that you don’t want to finish can affect your long-term goals. Every step you take today can either help or hinder your pursuit of success.
Choose progress over procrastination. If you never do what needs to be done today, you’ll never succeed tomorrow!
