The greatest enemy of excellence

Procrastination

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow, Creeps in this petty pace from day to day To the last syllable of recorded time, And all our yesterdays have lighted fools The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player That struts and frets his hour upon the stage And then is heard no more; it is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing. William Shakespeare - Macbeth, V.v.19-28 (Macbeth)

Procastination implies
a lack of focus a lack of discipline a lack of diligence

Towards Excellence
Good, better, best; Never let it rest till your good is better and your better is best.
