Pessimists:

Some people always look at the negative side. Who is a pessimist?

Pessimists:

è Are unhappy when they have no troubles to speak of

è Feel bad when they feel good, for fear they will fell worse when they feel better

è Spend most of their life at complaint counters

è Always turn out the lights to see how dark it is

è Are always looking for cracks in the mirror of life

è Stop sleeping in bed when they hear that more people die in bed than anywhere else

è Cannot enjoy their health because they think they may be sick tomorrow

è Not only expect the worst but make the worst of whatever happens

è Don’t see the doughnut, only the hole

è Believe that the sun shines only to cast shadows

è Forget their blessings and count their troubles

è Know that hard work never hurts anyone but believe “why take a chance?”

Procrastination:

When I Become a Big Boy

This is like the little boy who says when he becomes a big boy; he will do this and that and will be happy. And when he becomes a big boy he says that when he finishes college he will be happy. And when he finishes college he says that when he gets his first job he will be happy. And when he gets his first job he says that when he gets married, then he will be happy. And when he gets married he says when the kids get out of school he will be happy. And when the kids get out of school, he says that when he retires, he will be happy. And when he retires, what does he see? He sees life has just gone by in front of his eyes.
Some people practice procrastination by hiding behind high-sounding words, saying “I’m analyzing” and six months later they are still analyzing. What they don’t realize is that they are suffering from a disease called: Paralysis by Analysis and they will never succeed.
Then there is another breed of people who procrastinate by saying “I’m getting ready”. A month later they are still getting ready. What they don’t realize is they are suffering from a disease called “Excusitis”. They keep making excuses.
He slept beneath the moon
He basked beneath the sun
He lived a life of going to do
and died with nothing done.
-James Albery
