The Biggest Nation

Hey sumo-lings! After several weeks of self reflection, countless hours cataloging every move, motive and thought - I've arrived on the other side with something special to share with you. I traveled to a popular place amongst us all, one of the largest and arguably the most popular nation on the entire planet. What am I talking about? - ProcrastiNation

Procrastination is not only a word - it's a mindset, a demon, your enemy. I found inspirational quotes that helped me to evaluate and eliminate procrastination's sumo-grip.

"Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task." ~William James

"Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday." ~Don Marquis

"Every duty which is bidden to wait returns with seven fresh duties at its back." ~Charles Kingsley

Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it." ~ M. Scott Peck

"There are a million ways to lose a work day, but not even a single way to get one back." ~Tom DeMarco and Timothy Lister

"Don't fool yourself that important things can be put off till tomorrow; they can be put off forever, or not at all." ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic's Notebook

"There's nothing to match curling up with a good book when there's a repair job to be done around the house." ~Joe Ryan

"Don’t wait. The time will never be just right". ~Napoleon Hill

"We shall never have more time. We have, and have always had, all the time there is. No object is served in waiting until next week or even until tomorrow. Keep going day in and day out. Concentrate on something useful. Having decided to achieve a task, achieve it at all costs." ~Arnold Bennett. 

"In a moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing to do. The worst thing you can do is nothing." ~Theodore Roosevelt
