Why Put Off for Tomorrow What You Can Do Today?

Updated on December 29, 2016

Take The First Step Today

The things that we do today will possibly make a difference for a better future. As we live in the moment of each day, it is important to be in the state-of-mind of happiness. Have there been tasks or other things that you have made a 'to do' list about, but haven't got around to completing them? If you keep your mind set on doing things today instead of tomorrow, you will have a better chance at achieving incomplete tasks. Winners do things that losers will never do, so 'just do it.' The things that you are doing today will have an effect on your tomorrow. Every day choose to do things that will get you further into a successful future. When things are done in inches each day, a mile doesn't seem so far away.

Avoid doing things that waste your time, make a list of things that waste your time and avoid doing them. Then make a list of tasks or things that you want to complete, work toward it every day until you have achieved it. Time waits for no one, get as much as you can out of the 24 hours you have in each day.

Live for Today Because

There are times that people want to wait to do things, but we should do things today and not tomorrow. Some people want to wait to use their good China or Crystal dishware, try using your good dishware for dinner with your family and friends, and avoid waiting. And there are some people that want to wait to wear their cute clothes, but wear them now and not wait for tomorrow. Avoid waiting to do things for tomorrow, because tomorrow may never come.

Take that first step today in avoiding procrastination, and once you do that, practice staying motivated and enthusiastic to stick with it, your goals, business ideas, etc.

Live for Today Because Life is Too Short

  • Discover your purpose.
  • Dance today.
  • Sing a happy song today.

      What a beautiful hub, especially the list of suggestions, which I plan to implement, especially the one's I've not given much attention to. Especially the one about saying something positive about YOURSELF. Voted up, useful, awesome, and beautiful. I even "liked" it on Facebook!

      @ Xstatic, agreed procrastination is not a friend. Thanks for commenting.

      @ Rosalinem, I too am learning to do things for today instead of tomorrow, especially if it's something to help me get further in my hobbies or talents. Thanks

      I have been procrastinating about the pile of papers on the floor next to my desk for some time now (I won't say how long). Tomorrow (really) I am going to read this HUB again, tear into that pile and do away with it. Sorting and discarding will be the order of the day...tomorrow. Voted UP and interesting!
