Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task.
Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday.
Only Robinson Crusoe had everything done by Friday.
Every duty which is bidden to wait returns with seven fresh duties at its back.
The sooner I fall behind, the more time I have to catch up.
If it weren't for the last minute, I wouldn't get anything done.
Anyone can do any amount of work, provided it isn't the work he is supposed to be doing at that moment.
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
It is an undoubted truth, that the less one has to do, the less time one finds to do it in.

You may delay, but time will not.
Someday is not a day of the week.
To think too long about doing a thing often becomes its undoing.
Don't fool yourself that important things can be put off till tomorrow; they can be put off forever, or not at all.

Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion.
~C. Northcote Parkinson, 1958
Procrastination is opportunity's assassin.
If you want to make an easy job seem mighty hard, just keep putting off doing it.
What may be done at any time will be done at no time.
There's nothing to match curling up with a good book when there's a repair job to be done around the house.
Procrastination is something best put off until tomorrow.

The best way to get something done is to begin.
You know you are getting old when it takes too much effort to procrastinate.
I do my work at the same time each day - the last minute.
Tomorrow is often the busiest day of the week.
The time to begin most things is ten years ago.
~Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic's Notebook, 1966
Putting off an easy thing makes it hard. Putting off a hard thing makes it impossible.
~George Claude Lorimer
Tomorrow is the day when idlers work, and fools reform.
Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.
Tomorrow is the only day in the year that appeals to a lazy man.
A year from now you may wish you had started today.
Procrastination is like masturbation. At first it feels good, but in the end you're only screwing yourself.
