Nothing will sink your boat faster, build those walls higher, dig the pits deeper, or make the snag in your best sweater longer than procrastination.
During this month of order, procrastination is the "evil genius" I intend to do battle with and obtain victory over. Please tell me I am not in this alone.
Here are a few quotes I've rustled up from various places on the internet. I cannot vouch for their accuracy, but they make the point clear. Read and be inspired to go forth and conquer! Do it now!
