Procrastination, a Dream-Killer

“Until you value yourself, you will not value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.” – M. Scott Peck

Once upon a time as a sales manager, my reports were​ always late. I was a natural procrastinator. Whenever there was something to be done, my first instinct was to do it later.

Does this remind you of yourself? Do you have a task on hand you’ve been thinking about and putting off? If yes, my advice is that you start climbing that hill now – thinking about it will not make it smaller.

Take it or leave it, procrastination is a silent burglar of joy – kill it before it ruins your dream.

Did you know? – Leonardo da Vinci was a notorious procrastinator. He completed fewer than 20 paintings in his lifetime and spent 16 years on the Mona Lisa alone.


  1. Procrastination is indeed a joy killer. Great joys are derivable from small daily accomplishments which improves the probability of achieving the long-term strategic objectives.

    Deal with procrastinations and accomplish your daily successes. Achieve your daily goals and you will be surprised with a huge accomplishment by year-end.

    Thanks Chief Sunny Agboju. It is always a Always a bright day on mindomata.

    • Thank you, sir, especially for the angle on strategy. I look forward to spending good time with you again and hear you break down strategy. You never cease to amaze me how you break down seemingly hard subjects such that even a nitwit will easily understand. I hail!

  2. Procrastination takes one no where. You just remain on the same spot probably thinking you’re making progress while you’re not.
    When you procrastinate, you are troubled in your heart because of what is yet to be done.
    Speedy accomplishment of task brings joy and peace of mind.
    May God continue to oil the wheel of wisdom at work in you.

  3. Procrastination is said to be a lazy man’s apology for inaction and limited growth. Things done timely are always done well and rightly so because time steals your memory and renders unimportant things that really matter.
    Fortunately, it does save time…in the long run.

    • I love the expression: “time steals your memory and renders unimportant things that really matter.” It captured it all. Thank you.

  4. This is a really relevant topic; especially at a time when majority of people are just happy to have survived the year and a lot of dreams and visions are left lying fallow.
