The last minute

by Sep 30, 2022

Yesterday, the following quote hit a nerve with me, as a person who sometimes suffers from procrastination.

This is the quote from Seth Godin (the guru in marketing):

The last minute

If you do anything at the last minute that takes more than a minute, you’re not organizing your project properly.

The last minute is not a buffer zone, nor is it the moment to double-check your work.

The last minute is simply sixty seconds to enjoy and to remind yourself that you successfully planned ahead.

— Seth Godin

It strengthened me in the fight against procrastination and to improve myself more.

Hope it will give you some focus too!
