Words of Wisdom on Sense of Urgency

Without a sense of urgency, desire loses its value.
~ Jim Rohn, motivational speaker, philosopher and entrepreneur

In everyday life there is always maņana. There is no urgency.
~ Mark Spitz, Olympic swimming champion

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.
~ Leonardo da Vinci, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, painter, sculptor, architect, botanist, musician and writer

Great things come to those who hustle while they wait.
~ Thomas Edison

Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.
~ Abraham Lincoln

A sense of urgency wins.
~ Jim Estill, CEO of SYNNEX Canada

If not now, when?
~ Hillel, religious leader

The people who make things move in this world share a same sense of urgency. No matter how intelligent or able you may be, if you don't have a sense of urgency, now is the time to start developing it. The world is full of very competent people who honestly intend to do things tomorrow, or as soon as they can get around to it. Their accomplishments, however, seldom match those of the less talented who are blessed with a sense of importance of getting started now.
~ Anonymous

Sometimes the most urgent thing you can possibly do is take a complete rest!
~ Ashleigh Brilliant, author and syndicated cartoonist

I couldn't wait for success, so I went ahead without it.
~ Jonathan Winters, American comedian and actor

I never worry about action, only inaction.
~ Winston Churchill, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom

I think there is something more important than believing: Action! The world is full of dreamers, there aren't enough who will move ahead and begin to take concrete steps to actualize their vision.
~ Clement Stone

A leopard is chasing us, and you are asking me, "Is it a male or a female?"
~ African Proverb

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.
~ Anne Frank, posthumously published German writer

"Now" is the operative word. Everything you put in your way is just a method of putting off the hour when you could actually be doing your dream. You don't need endless time and perfect conditions. Do it now. Do it today. Do it for twenty minutes and watch your heart start beating.
~ Sam Ewing, veteran humorist and professional writer

Don't wait. The time will never be just right.
~ Napoleon Hill, one of America's foremost success/motivation authors

The wise does at once what the fool does at last.
~ Baltasar Gracian, a Jesuit priest

A wise person does at once, what a fool does at last. Both do the same thing; only at different times.
~ Lord Acton, a British historian
