This last weekend, I finally took the time to straightened up the garage. After nearly two months after moving into the house, it was time to get both cars into the garage. One short hour later, both cars are in the garage.
Procrastination is such an easy thing. Why do we put off something which would only take a few minutes to complete.
Wayne Gretzky is quoted to say – Procrastination is one of the most common and deadliest of diseases and its toll on success and happiness is heavy.
Lord Chesterfield said – Know the true value of time; snatch, seize, and enjoy every moment of it. No idleness, no laziness, no procrastination: never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.
Things would have been much easier if I would have put things in their proper place when we moved in. Instead we found places to just set the “stuff” and then it was something which needed to be handled. Another area of procrastination is in presenting the Gospel to others. How many times have I had the opportunity to share the Gospel and not.
Pearl of Wisdom
“Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work or device or knowledge or wisdom in the grave where you are going.” Ecclesiastes 9:10
“Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might.” Don’t procrastinate in serving the Lord, and don’t ever serve Him in a wimpy manner. Halfhearted service is not only “not hearty,” it’s only barely alive. When you do for the Lord what He asks you to do in a halfhearted way, you’re not living up to your potential in Christ.
I am going to purpose to reduce my rate of procrastination. What will you do?
