"Take action. Procrastination is the death blow to self-motivation. I'll do it later...after I get organized is the language of the unsuccessful and the frustrated.

"If once a man indulges himself in murder, very soon he comes to think little of robbing. And from robbing he comes next to drinking and Sabbath-breaking and from that to incivility and procrastination."
PLEASE DONíT RETIRE
Weíve got a dangerous practice in America called "retirement." Itís a blessing in some ways, but itís also dangerous because it implies that your productivity stops when you get to be 62 or 65.

"Excessive worry, or what I call toxic worry, can make you sick, it can cut down your enjoyment of life, and it can hamper your productivity. Toxic worry is bad for every system in your body: it increases the risk of heart attacks and strokes, it impairs digestion, it causes shortness of breath, it causes all kinds of musculoskeletal aches and pains, [and] it produces headaches and migraines."
"My advice is, never do tomorrow what you can do today. Procrastination is the thief of time. Collar him"
