It may be difficult to imagine people procrastinating during Benjamin Franklin’s day. We imagine people in the 1700s full of initiative and progress from the vast amount of citizens forging into the wilderness to create homes on their pursuit of freedom from an oppressive England. It seems nearly impossible procrastination could have existed. However, it did exist, and it still does to this day. The heart of this quote simply says progress is measured by what and how much you can accomplish. If you continually put off decisions or completing tasks, progress will come to a halt. Progress is the seed for growth.
Procrastination is even more dangerous now because of the vast amount of distractions from television, smart phones, media and any other instance that can draw our attention away from the task at hand. The solution is to create a discipline requiring you to accomplish what needs to be done, and when it needs to be done. By simply doing things immediately rather than putting them off and getting distracted with things that hinder progress, you will find success is within your reach. Take a moment and think. What can you do today to make tomorrow a better day?
