Forms of Procrastination:
“Procrastination is the fear of success. People procrastinate
because they are afraid of the success that they know will
result if they move ahead now. Because success is heavy, carries a responsibility with it, it is much easier to procrastinate and live on the ‘someday I’ll’ philosophy.”
Denis Waitley, author
“A successful student accepts personal responsibility,
discovers self-motivation, masters self-management,
employs interdependence, gains self awareness,
adopts lifelong learning, develops emotional
intelligence, and believes in themselves.”
Skip Downing, On Course
