Procrastination – Part 4


Okay, okay, okay,
That’s enough – no more, I say!

For those who don’t know:
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…

  1. #26: scary thought!

    #27: clearly, someday does not exist – but then, neither does tomorrow, n’est-ce pas?

    #31: kinda liked it, but it’s a little short on logic, no? – perhaps she should have worded it differently? (or is it me?)

    #30: my fave – on reading I sighed, thinking: oh good, I’m not old yet. 🙂


  2. I like putting things off, so I suppose I am Pro Crastination?


  3. The secret of getting ahead is getting started. Oh boy, can I ever distract myself from getting started!


  4. Love # 31. Now if only I could get it right 🙂


  5. hehe. i like 31…b/c we need to slow down but if only to do something other than sit in front of the couch…


    • I agree. Even if we didn’t procrastinate, life is a race against time and sometimes is the reason for procrastinating! A vicious circle in the end, lol!
