Procrastination – Part 1


Okay, okay, okay,
I could not stay away!

Part of the reason for my taking a break from blogging is because years of procrastination have caught up with me… Thus, in order to quiet my withdrawal symptoms, I am posting some famous quotes about procrastination each day this week. I hope you enjoy them…

Procrastination – Part 1

Taken from:

1. “I love deadlines. Especially the whooshing sound they make as they pass by.” – Douglas Adams

2. “Procrastination is like a credit card: it’s a lot of fun until you get the bill.” – Christopher Parker

3. “Do you know what happens when you give a procrastinator a good idea? Nothing!” – Donald Gardner

4. “Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday and avoiding today.” – Wayne Dyer

5. “Procrastination is the thief of time.” – Edward Young

  1. I’ll read this later …


  2. I’m a terrible procrastinator, partly because I want it done right but don’t want to take the time to do it right…yet. And so it waits and waits and waits.


  3. hehe. yeah i know this one…love the douglas adams quote…


  4. Love the Douglas Adams…

    When I was a grad student I had a postcard above my desk with a picture of Wm Shakespeare on the front and the words:

    “So I haven’t written lately. Neither has Shakespeare.”

    Needless to say, my thesis supervisor was not impressed – don’t think he knew the meaning of procrastination.

    Good to see you!


  5. I am procrastinating right now :)!


  6. Some brilliant quotes, Adee.
    Sadly half my colleagues seem to be in total agreement with Douglas Adams 😦


  7. Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.-Pablo Picasso.


  8. Morning Adee…just love the Douglas Adams one…but then I am a real Douglas Adams fan!


  9. I’m with the Christopher Parker quote. Am sitting here alternating between looking at the deadline for some web copy that I should be writing, an unfinished argumentative essay for university which is due tomorrow and, hey, guess where I am now?! reading your blog. So am in a whole lotta pain and no weekend to look forward to! 🙂


    • I SO empathise with you Bb. I get myself in such tight corners too, but I have noticed that I tend to put off things that are less interesting to me. Sometimes these things, once started, end up being easier than anticipated. Good luck with your essay 😉


    • Hi Bb – just check out #16 in today’s post…


  10. I like that first one, but then, I like Douglas Adams. Being new to blogging, I feel guilty when I don’t and here you are telling us it is like an addiction. Unlike an addiction it pleases others rather than just oneself—so maybe it is a GOOD addiction. And yay! …it’s Friday!


    • Maybe not everyone gets addicted, Tillie, but a great many do. Perhaps it has to do with the interaction with other bloggers. I just know that it has become a compulsion with me and I really NEED to post a blog every day if I can. Yay, Friday at last! Have a great weekend.
