The early bird gets the worm. Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today. The journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step.
We all know the maxims, but we still procrastinate. Probably because while these sayings are inspirational and all, they’re not actually all that helpful. Sure, taking one step isn’t hard — but when there’s still 1,000 miles left to go, it doesn’t seem to make that much of a dent either. So we stay put because it’s easier.
