I to, am guilty of doing this putting off till tomorrow and not doing today what I should do and with so much time to accomplish whatever. So why tomorrow and not today? I call it regimentation, I say that because when I was in the Army (not so much the Navy) no matter what you had to do it was covered by regulations and time frames to get done. I have lived by that code for so long, then I “got lazy”, plenty of time on my hands and no hurry to get them dirty.
I believe in the slogan never put off till tomorrow what you can do today. Heck tomorrow it might just compound the requirements and you are behind already.
In the Navy, a great outfit to serve in, we had a lot of flexibility that we did not have in the Army. I still tried to govern by the same code as much as I could. I call that leadership of which I may or may not have had much of. But we got the jobs done in a timely manner. I had a great crew in both branches.
