We don’t have to be smarter than the rest. We have to be more disciplined than the rest.
Maturity comes when you stop making excuses and start making changes.
Rafiki, The Lion King
Excuses are the easy way out.
Everybody can find excuses for anything. Excuses not to work out, not to get up early, not to eat healthy; excuses are the little devils on your shoulder that make your life easy in the short-term and miserable in the long-term.
Maturity is to realise that in order to achieve long-term success, you have to work hard and sometimes make unpleasant choices in the short-term. No pain no gain goes the saying and that’s damn straight when it comes to any form of achievement in the real world.
So get the excuse-automatism out of your head and start being responsible (at least for yourself). It will be rough in the beginning, but what can I say, you will reap what you sow!
Well this is acutally advertising, but I don’t care, you won’t get so much good stuff on procrastination in such short time any other way. Enjoy:
