Mastery of Procrastination
“Procrastination is one of the most common and deadliest of diseases and its toll on success and happiness is heavy.”
~ Wayne Gretzky
Every leader has the habit of making decisions quickly and changing them very slowly.
The majority of people that fail to provide sufficiently for their needs are generally easily influenced by the opinion of others. They permit the newspapers, television, radio, and the the thoughts of others to speak into their lives without discretion. Being easily influenced by the opinions of others will kill any desire you may have.
Learn to keep your own counsel of people that are in complete sympathy and harmony with your purpose. Seek their advice but come to your own conclusions and follow up immediately with ACTION.
“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.”
If you need facts or information from other people, get the information quickly and discreetly. It is a shield from potential negative and from people that set out to defeat you because they envy you.
A general rule of thumb, “keep a closed mouth and open ears and eyes.”
Those that make decisions promptly and decisively usually get what they want because they know EXACTLY what they want.
Defeating procrastination takes real courage but those that are willing to live by their purpose have the world in their hands.
“You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”
~ Martin Luther King Jr.
