Finally, I have posted my first blog entry after months of procrastination.
I can’t really explain why it took me so long to get started. I put it off for the past six months because something else always seemed more important. The demands of everyday life can often bog you down and keep you from doing things that you really desire in your heart to do. And while meaning well or meaning to do something is good, it only counts if you follow through with it. Imagine telling your creditor that you meant to pay them, but you got too busy with the cares of life. That probably wouldn’t go over too well.
Procrastination is a thief that can rob you of your dreams and destiny. The project that you put off could have been very successful, but because you waited until the last minute, you were not able to do your best work. A person may have needed to hear an encouraging word from you, but because you procrastinated in calling them, they went through another depressing day. When we procrastinate, we make the assumption that we are going to have time later to accomplish what we desire in our hearts to do. But what if we don’t get that time later on?
I urge you to not put off until tomorrow what you can do on today. Start that project that you wanted to get going. Call that friend or relative that you have been meaning to call but kept putting it off. If you have been meaning to spend more time with God, or read your bible, start today. Take time to enjoy and cherish today because tomorrow is not promised.
What is procrastination robbing you of?
