Swami Sivananda Thoughts on Procrastination

Procrastination is putting off till a future time, through lack of resolution. It is postponing or delaying.The foolish man says: “I will rise early tomorrow. I will pray and meditate tomorrow. I will carry out my intentions tomorrow.” But the wise man rises early to day, starts prayer and meditation today, carries out his intentions today and attains strength, peace, and success today.Procrastination is the thief of time. It is the destroyer of initiative. It closes the door to advancement.That “tomorrow” will never come. Tomorrow is too late for any thing. He who sees help and salvation in tomorrow shall continually fall to day. That lazy tomorrow will be like today.What you can do this morning never postpone till the evening. Never put off till tomorrow that which you can do to day.Swami Sivananda
