The Difference Between Procrastination and Patience

In my post last night, I said I would start blogging on the 1st.  I wanted to give myself time to get my act together before starting this daily chore.  I was procrastinating.  It’s a bad habit of mine, one that I need to overcome.  No time like the present.  Time to blog.

Fred Wilson, a venture capitalist for many successful web companies, replied to my post about overcoming procrastination with, “We wait it out :)”

Patience brings peace to anxious souls.  While there is something endearing about patience being the remedy to procrastination, patience does not solve the inherent problem.  We are mortals and time is finite.  Deferring projects, homework, goals or chores wastes time we could instead spend relishing in life’s accomplishments.
