Procrastination is the thief of time.



It has been said, ‘ Never put off for tomorrow what you can do today ‘. Yet there are many people who enjoy postponing things. Such people do not realize the dangers of delaying. Work does not disappear if we postpone it. One day or the other it has to be done. The more we postpone, the more the work piles up. Finally we have no choice but to tackle it. then the amount of work seems too much. We then have to work for long hours under great strain and tension. finally we do it hurriedly and in a careless manner. It is as bad as not doing the work at all.
Again, when some work is delayed, the time which would have been profitably used is wasted. Time wasted is time lost for ever, Hence procrastination, that is the habit of postponing things, is rightly called the thief of time. Precious time wasted means opportunities lost, and lost forever. by the time we realize how much time we have wasted and how many opportunities we have missed by delaying word, it may be too late. And then nothing remains for us except to regret and repent.
Sometimes a very heavy price has to be paid for delaying things. The person whi delays insuring his house will regret it when the house is gutted by a sudden fire. Delay in the treatment of a disease may make it worse, and may even result in death. The student who goes on postponing studies will need to burn the midnight oil for the last minute preparations.
There are other proverbs conveying similar meaning. Thus we say: ” Time and tide wait for no man ” and ” A stitch in time saves nine “. All these proverbs warns us against the dangers of delay in actions, and stress the importance of timely action and punctuality.
