“Procrastination is the thief of time. Collar him.”
—Edward Young, 18th Century English Poet
When we think of the word “collar” most of us think of the piece of clothing around our necks. In Young’s day, it was often used as a term to apprehend or arrest a criminal.
If you watch police shows on TV, the term often points to the success rate of bringing in the bad guys and taking them off the streets to pay for their crimes.
Procrastination is indeed a thief.
What has it stolen from you over the years?
How is it picking your pockets these days?
What strategies can and will you use to collar procrastination and free yourself of its choke-hold on your life?
