Procrastination is the thief of time
BY: CHRISTOPHER FERNANDEZ
The next time a person thinks of dilly dallying, of deferring or postponing from doing something, it will be well worth considering if you are doing the right thing by missing the cue as procrastination is the thief of time.
Never miss the cue to do something or to say something nice as the opportunity is gone and never going to come back and this is why a person has always got to be in sync, in tune with everything that is happening around him.
By missing the cue, by wasting time in not being decisive enough opportunities are lost but of course think and evaluate carefully before you make a decision or take action but do not act rashly or thoughtlessly.
But do not fall for being a procrastinator, be quick thinking, be certain and sure of what you must do and accordingly execute your decision without further hesitation or thought and a person will find to his or her surprise how rewarding is firm action.
It takes courage not to be a procrastinator because it requires a person to be equal to the challenge that is ahead of him or her and to be bold in carrying out the course of action to be productive and useful in life.
Procrastinating can prove to be costly and cause painful regrets to a person and since nothing in life is forever, a person must always be prepared to seize the opportunity to make hay while the sun shines.
