Devote yourself to your practice all the time

Sadhakas (aspirants) should only work enough to maintain the body. Try to avoid unnecessary activities. Less work is good. Devote yourself to your sadhana (practice) all the time. You dissipate your desire for the Self by undertaking all kinds of useless activities that waste your time and lead to attachments.

You think that your life is endless and you can put off meditation till a later date. ...

If you have to engage in activity to support yourself or your family, then do it, but always be aware of the Self, while you work.
