Good and Bad Traits


“I will” is a bad trait.

“I want” is and is not a [good] trait.

“I am” is a good trait.

    Why is “I will” a bad trait. Isn’t it good to have goals?

      I think it is a take off of “If not now, when?” from Pikei Avos. Saying I will do something later is not a good trait. I will learn later, I will do a mitzvah later….Better to just do it now.
