Passionate Writing: Work...and Contest Question #2

Can Anything be Sadder than
Work Unfinished?
Yes!
Work never begun.
--Christina Rossetti

Fear--
Fear cripples.
Fear damages
Fear holds a person back
from accomplishing.

Excuses--
I don't have time
I have to finish this first
I have to much to do right now
I don't know how
I'm not smart enough
big enough
strong enough
important enough--
I'm too tired.

Procrastination--
Tomorrow I'll have more time
After I come back from--
vacation
the store
visiting my mother, children, family, friends, whoever--
Not today, I've got to--
practice the piano
babysit
prepare dinner--


But wait:

You may delay, but time will not, and lost time is never found again.
— Benjamin Franklin

“The really happy people are those who have broken the chains of procrastination, 
those who find satisfaction in doing the job at hand. 
They’re full of eagerness, zest, productivity. 
You can be, too.”– Norman Vincent Peale
