Get it done

The things you put off, will eventually put you off. When something needs to be done, do it as quickly as possible. Delaying it only serves to use up more of your energy. Often the procrastination can take more out of you than the task itself.

Here’s a great way to make use of your time today. Pick something you need to do and get it done. Just imagine what a great sense of freedom and accomplishment it will bring you.

Do it now, and instead of draining yourself with delay you’ll be filled with the fruits of your labor. Get it out of the way, and you’ll be free from the worry and anxiety. There’s no sense in imposing an unnecessary burden on yourself. Free your energy, free your time, free your mind by tending quickly to the things you must do. The sooner you get started, the more you’ll get accomplished.

— Ralph Marston
