Procrastination - the thief of time / by JoFF Rae


"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning."
Albert Einstein


Time is nothing but a facetious idea.  A moment in time is an experience & each person has an individual experience of any given moment - even time is subject to perception… so to consider the issue & ramifications of procrastination we need consider standards of priority, ethics & productivity in a context of personal perception...
