The Snooze Button

The Snooze Button

What if life had a snooze button?

It does.

It is labeled procrastination.

A snooze button simply allows you to stay where you are a little
while longer instead of getting up and going.

That's exactly what procrastination is.

There is a funny thing about sleeping after you hit the snooze
button on an alarm clock; it seems like that sleep is more
precious. Not only is it more precious, it seems like time
speeds up approximately three fold. Fifteen minutes becomes
five minutes, ten minutes seem like three minutes.

Why do we hit the snooze button?

Because we can.

Imagine if you hit the lotto and you have to be there by 8 A.M.
to pickup your check or it is forfeited; the alarm goes off and
you look at the clock and it is 7 A.M. No matter how sleepy you
are, do you think you would even consider hitting the snooze

Some people are just not good in math in school, but it seems
like those same people become math geniuses when it comes to
calculating the absolute latest time they can get up, get ready
and make it to work or school, even with a foggy waking brain.

In life the snooze button is not usually in minutes.

We may know we need to go back to school and hit snooze for two
years later.

We may know we need to start exercising;
we hit snooze for next year.

We may know we want to travel and see some place in the world;
we hit snooze for five years later.

We may know we have an idea for a business; we hit snooze for
ten years later.

The other thing about the snooze button is that you can hit it
more than once to get a longer delay of getting moving.

Have you ever hit the snooze button while still sleep and didn't
remember hitting it?

Have you ever meant to do something in your life and didn't
realize it had been so long since you were supposed to get
started on it?

The two hardest things about doing something is getting started
and getting finished.


This is your wakeup call.

Get your finger off of that button.
