“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,”
Jane B. Burka, Procrastination: Why You Do It, What To Do About It

“They wish not only for ideal careers and relationships but also to make a masterpiece of the letter they write or the garden they plant. If you expect your everyday performance to be up to the level of your ideal picture of yourself, then whatever you do is bound to seem mediocre in comparison. You devalue the average, the ordinary, the regular, regarding them with contempt. Since mistakes and flaws are an inevitable part of the human condition, people who can’t bear the ordinary find comfort in procrastination. When an ordinary performance can be attributed to the last-minute rush, they can continue to believe their ideal could have been reached, if they’d had more time. This allows perfectionists to avoid feeling contempt for themselves when they are simply average.”
Jane B. Burka, Procrastination: Why You Do It, What To Do About It

“Time is passing; the future is coming; you are getting older; there are limits to what you will accomplish in your lifetime; and most starkly inevitable of all, eventually you will die.”
Jane B. Burka, Procrastination: Why You Do It, What To Do About It

“New cultural situations are stressful; often they pose a conflict between assimilating into the new culture and holding onto family and friends from the old culture. Procrastination helps you avoid making difficult choices and facing the potential loss of important attachments.”
Jane B. Burka, Procrastination: Why You Do It, What To Do About It

“Some people would rather suffer the consequences of procrastination than the humiliation of trying and not doing as well as they had hoped.”
Jane B. Burka, Procrastination: Why You Do It, What To Do About It
