13 of the Best Quotes to Beat Procrastination

Quotes to Help Beat Procrastination

Procrastination is something most, if not all of us suffer with at some point. Personally, I experience it A LOT and I really do hate it. It makes me feel lazy, unproductive and like I’m going round in circles.

When it comes to procrastination, we probably all have our own reasons for indulging in it. It could be because we don’t know how to get started on the bigger tasks, fear of the unknown, or even just because we’re running low on motivation. Either way, it’s a sure fire way of letting obstacles get in the way of our goals.

As I’ve been busy indulging in a bit of procrastination myself these last few weeks, I thought I would put together a list of the best quotes I could find on the internet to help us beat procrastination into submission.

And if all the motivating quotes of the internet fail you, then take a leaf out of Jessica Rose Williams’ book and write a done-list, instead of a to do list! Far more motivating than a list of chores you’ve yet to tackle.

      I am a little bit too, but desperately trying to get my act together. If you fancy a motivational read, I really recommend a book called ‘Eat That Frog!: Get More of the Important Stuff Done’ – I’m trying to use it to retain my procrastinating brain!! xx
