A Haiku - Procrastination


Someone once said that

"He who hesitates is lost,

Ponder and perform."


But someone else said,

"Beware of hasty choices,

For thus, 'Haste makes waste.'"


Tomorrow is full.

No room for leftover stuff,

Such as yesterday's.





Even meditation can be done while walking!

True time passed very fast and you can't turn back the clock

peachpurple - There is another saying that might have been framed here, namely "Too soon old, and too late smart."

Setting daily priorities and acting on them is the best cure for procrastination

Thanks for not procrastinating reading this one. ; - )

Too late smart is still better than never though. I'm hanging on to that hope!

I like the last stanza a lot.
