Never Say Later
“I’ll do it later” is such a common phrase in this day and age. Chances are you will not get it done for a very long time. It may seem like a little thing and not so serious however the mentality alone can be quite damaging. This ‘later’ mentality will be the reason why you lose passion easily. It will also be the reason why you miss deadlines. Whenever you have something to do, make time for it and do it right away otherwise all you’re going to be doing is catching up.
The question you have to ask yourself is “What am I doing now which is stopping me from doing my homework?” It doesn’t have to be your homework but you get the gist. If the thing you’re doing now takes priority over your work, then that is fine. Just make a note as to when you will complete the work. However, if you are just catching up on a series or watching a funny video, then surely that can wait and your work should take priority over this.
Life is all about priorities. A lot of people say they want to be successful but they do not want to put in the time and effort required to reach the top. Procrastination has no part in success so you need to limit this as much as you can. I do get it because I procrastinate from time to time. It is very easy to do. However, when there is something important I need to do, I always do it right away so that I can get it out of the way and carry on doing what I enjoy.
