  1. Take Action Today
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Procrastination is our deadly foe,
    For tomorrow it'll continue to grow;

    It'll only take a minute or none;

  4. Make Every Second Count
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    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.

  6. Tomorrow I'll Start
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    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!

  8. Procrastinate No More
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    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.

  9. Procrastinate no more, don’t put it off to the side, There's power of starting right away

  10. 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.

  12. Stalling
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Procrastination, an enemy of hope
    Offers no benefits, it doesn't help us cope.
    Stalling just brings on frustration
    For success, it is not a foundation.

    Hours pass by while nothing’s achieved
    A crime against progress, of which we all grieve
    Procrastination brings no luck or good fortune
    It’s merely a comfort and short-term diversion.

  14. No Time Like The Present
    Poet: Phoebe Cary

    If you’re told to do a thing,
    And mean to do it really,
    Never let it be by halves;
    Do it fully, freely.

    Do not make a poor excuse,
    Waiting, weak, unsteady;
    All obedience worth the name
    Must be prompt and ready.

    If you’re told to learn a task,
    And you should begin it,
    Do not tell your teacher, "Yes,
    I’m coming in a minute."

    Waste not moments nor your words
    In telling what you could do
    Some other time; the present is
    For doing what you should do.
