The following is an excerpt from John Maxwell’s Success: One Day At A Time.

People who achieve daily success have learned to conquer four common time-wasters.

Laziness: Time put to no useful purpose, not even relaxation.

Procrastination: Putting off things that should be done now.

Distraction: Time frittered away on the details of side issues, to the detriment of the main issue.

Impatience: Lack of preparation, thoroughness, or perseverance, usually resulting in time-consuming mistakes.
