More on procrastination in hashkafah

Shiur #84 in Rav Aharon Kahn’s Hashkafah Series Based on Mishlei with Biur HaGra.

Content Description: Mishlei verse 3:28.  The danger of pushing off obligations and opportunities that only arise infrequently.   If it was possible to learn today, but you put it off till tomorrow, tomorrow’s extra learning does not make up for it, since that learning ‘belongs’ to tomorrow!  The only successful route to becoming a Talmid Chochom is to learn today, and not to make plans to earn money now and thereby facilitate learning later.   One strategy of the yetzer hara is to convince you that you are not capable of learning, or of performing chesed.
