I don't want to bury my opportunities!

"Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity is buried."

Yes, that sounds very true to me. :(

But it's not too late yet, even if I already missed some opportunities!

Procrastination causes: not clearly identified yet


So this will be all for now. I'm at work after all and this is no time to waste time! :P


I can identify

I know the grave of opportunities oh too well myself :(

For what it is worth, I read on the "Don't Delay" blog on Psychology Today that forgiving oneself for past procrastination and missed opportunities often decreases the drive to procrastinate in the future...I just wish I knew how to do it!

re: I can identify


I think of all that time I spend on beating myself up and going over past mistakes as 1) wasted 2) selfish.   Once I began to see that I was spending a lot of time just thinking about myself and wallowing in my self-disgust, I started to see that process as being self-absorbed and egotistical.  Thinking of it that way helps me to move forward.
