Reading these poems about procrastination can be an effective way to help motivate us and provide some perspective on procrastinating.
Procrastination is a common problem that affects many of us. It can be difficult to find the motivation to start a task, and when we do, it's often tempting to delay and put it off until the last minute. However, procrastinating can have serious consequences and it's important to use our time wisely.
Let these poems encourage you not to procrastinate.
Time is a gift that's given to all,
It can be used creatively or used to stall.
A successful person will not let it pass by,
But makes the best of time with a try.
For progress must come from within our depths,
Not allowing idle behavior for it will cost regrets.
Therefore, wise people don't wait and procrastinate,
Make every second count, now before it's too late.
Tomorrow I'll start anew, and find myself content,
With the night ahead of me and a moment well spent
For procrastination, I shall no longer part,
The pressure that comes with it tears me apart.
Tomorrow the energy will flow in waves so grand,
To start out fresh and make another stand,
Invigorated by my newfound plans,
Adventures and surprises await with open hands.
Tomorrow's path is uncertain yet quite interesting to trace,
Toward the future, I march at a loving steady pace.
Thoughts clear as glass this time I'll try again,
To have one more opportunity to begin!
Procrastinate no more, don’t put it off to the side,
There's power in starting right away, don't let it hide.
Success can't come if you do not try,
Your future awaits if you have the will to fly.
Act while the time is nigh and do not put it aside,
The things you forego by stalling can not be supplied.
No gain comes from waiting and complacency won’t intercede,
Too much is at stake; just do it now so your dreams succeed.
Procrastination Creates More Stress
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer
Stressed and overwhelmed, I can find no rest.
Procrastination only creates more stress.
For every task that's left behind undone,
The problem is amplified a ton.
Sitting here in disarray, putting it off was no remedy,
I realize I've done nothing but run after yesterday.
It was wrong of me from the start, but I see that now,
No progress prospers when you delay and allow.
Procrastination can be an obstacle in our lives. It is something that should not be taken lightly, as it has the potential to rob us of precious time and opportunities that may not come again. I hope these poems remind you of the importance of living life to the fullest and not wasting time on unimportant things. We must remember that when it comes to taking charge of our lives, procrastination should never be part of the equation.
