“Don’t put it off; do it now! Don’t rest until you do.” Proverbs 6:4 NLT
How many times have you put off for tomorrow something that was screaming at you to be done today? We can all testify that we have fallen prey to procrastination.
Procrastinators tend to work from behind. They are always trying to catch up because of the too many times they did the easy thing rather than the necessary thing. People who wish to walk in power and purpose cannot be procrastinators. They must develop the skills and discipline required to avoid procrastinating so that they could accomplish their purpose. They must always look to be a step ahead. This would enable them to accomplish more with less stress on their lives.
Think about this for a minute: Procrastinators accomplish less and have more stress. People who don’t procrastinate accomplish more and have less stress.
As one person rightly said “Procrastination never won a race, received a promotion or changed the outcome of any situation.” Procrastination is our enemy. If we ever want to get anything done in this life we have to learn avoid procrastination. We have to decide today to get moving forward towards our purpose in life.
We are not promised tomorrow. All we have is right now. We cannot afford to put off the decision to make our lives count.
Now is the time to take action. Not tomorrow, but now. Right now. You only have one life to live. This is not a trial run, but it is the real thing. Now is YOUR time!
