Is procrastination a problem for you? It sure is for me. I hate to think about all my good ideas that I have failed to act on.
The moment you started thinking, little involuntary muscles moved as you thought. But you mustn't let your idea stop with those small, involuntary muscles.
Thought must always lead to action.
You've set yourself a goal—improvement in at least one area. You've written it down. The third and final step is to initiate some action that will set you firmly on the path toward your goal.
Permit yourself no interruptions, no changes, no exceptions in your new pattern. You're building a new you. The time to start is—when? Next month? Next week? Tomorrow? You know better.
If you procrastinate, you may never start. William James, one of the world's greatest psychologists, said it would almost be better never to have an inspiring thought than to have it and fail to act on it. He didn't believe that even attending a concert was worthwhile, if you let the inspiration you got from it evaporate without action.
Inspiration and constructive thoughts must lead to expression. Or else you haven't moved forward to victory. Get moving!
