Procrastination

01 December 2009

"Procrastination is the most common manifestation of Resistance because it's the easiest to rationalize. We don't tell ourselves, "I'm never going write my symphony." Instead we say, "I am going to write my symphony; I'm just going to start tomorrow.
The most pernicious aspect of procrastination is that is can become a habit. We don't just put off our lives today; we put them off till our deathbed.

Never forget: This very moment, we can change our lives. There never was moment, and never will be, when we are without the power to alter our destiny. This second, we can turn the tables on Resistance.

This second, we can sit down and do our work. "

-Steven Pressfield, The War of Art
