They tell us you'll never reach your goals if you're lazy.
They tell us to work hard NOW.
And get it done NOW.
Then you'll be successful NOW.
The truth is....success takes time. A LOT of time. It doesn't happen NOW (or even "tomorrow" when you plan on doing it.) but it does happen...
It's NOT about working HARD and FAST to get there but working SMART and SLOW.
Very few people strike it rich overnight, unless they win the genetic lottery or mega jackpot.
Generally working hard at a quick pace is a waste of energy.
People that work hard toward their goals end up either...
a) running out of steam and burning out or...
b) become so deluded by a world of "instant gratification" that they give up when success doesn't happen NOW
We ProcrastiN8rs, we may be lazy but with laziness comes patience and persistence.
Patience is knowing that you won’t get Instant Gratification (of success). Persistence is moving forward slowly despite that fact.
Remain persistent in your endeavors and don't let anything or anyone bring you down.
Stay cool and calm and continue to do "just enough" to move forward.
Remember, the sloth makes it up the tree.
Slowly but surely.
Be. The. Sloth.
Climb your way to the heights of success no matter how long it takes. There is no rush.
You can't and won't be successful right away, so don't work your ass off like you can and will be.
Take your time and relax man, you got this.
You're gonna fuck up sometimes, but that's okay. Patience and Persistence.
Don't feel like you're a failure just because you're not where you want to be.
An acorn is not a failure of an oak tree. It just hasn't fully grown yet.
