Not only is it possible, but for the sake of sanity, it's required through and through.

Procrastination is the root of our evil. In the MA, procrastination must be avoided at all costs because our work ethics speaks quite a lot about us across the board.

"I'll do it tomorrow...I'll do it tomorrow...I'll do it tomorrow" NO!! Do it, and do it now; before it's too late.

Procrastination drives me absolutely crazy; don't want it, or that person near me.

That's right sensei8, the more assertive martial artists the better.

Tomorrow is the magical land where 99% of the productivity happens. It's always very busy!

“Procrastinate now, don't put it off" Ellen DeGeneres

"Procrastination is opportunity's assassin" Victor Kiam

You know you are getting old when it takes too much effort to procrastinate. Author Unknown

"Tomorrow is the only day in the year that appeals to a lazy man" Jimmy Lyons

“The best way to get something done is to begin.” Author Unknown

“Getting an idea should be like sitting on a pin; it should make you jump up and do something. E. L. Simpson

“This one makes a net, this one stands and wishes. Would you like to make a bet which one gets the fishes" Chinese Rhyme

“If and When were planted, and Nothing grew.” Proverb

“Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity is buried.” Author Unknown

“All things come to those who wait, but when they come they’re out of date.” Anonymous

“The really happy people are those who have broken the chains of procrastination, those who find satisfaction in doing the job at hand. They’re full of eagerness, zest, productivity. You can be, too.” Norman Vincent Peale

“You cannot plough a field by turning it over in your mind.” Author Unknown

“Much of the stress that people feel doesn’t come from having too much to do. It comes from not finishing what they started.” David Allen

“Do you know what happens when you give a procrastinator a good idea? Nothing!” Donald Gardner

“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 responsibility with it, it is much easier to procrastinate and live on the “someday I’ll” philosophy”. Denis Waitley

“Procrastination is a way for us to be satisfied with second-rate results; we can always tell ourselves we’d have done a better job if only we’d had more time. If you’re good at rationalizing, you can keep yourself feeling rather satisfied this way, but it’s a cheap happy. You’re whittling your expectations of yourself down lower and lower.” Richard O’Conner

“We are so scared of being judged that we look for every excuse to procrastinate.” Erica Jong

“He who hesitates is a damned fool.” Mae West

I avoid procrastination all the time. As a matter of fact, I put it off as much as I can...
