Don’t put off what can be done today. We always think we have next time, the next day, the next week, so on, and so forth. We like to put things off. We like to avoid the reality of what is right in front of us. What needs to be taken care of, or accomplished, NOW. We procrastinate. It’s easier. It can become addicting. It is an addiction. Procrastination is an addiction. It becomes who we are, what we do. Procrastination is a trap. It is the easy way out. Or so we think. Procrastination in actuality, isn’t an out. Eventually, what we procrastinate on, will have to be done, will have to be accomplished, will have to be taken care of. When we procrastinate, we push things down the line, to a later date. And again, eventually, that later date comes. We create a mountain of things we could have done, but didn’t. We find, we don’t have enough time to climb the mountain. We get stressed, frustrated, angry, irritable, and we look for others to blame. The procrastination has become a giant mess. A mess, too big to clean up all at once. We fail. We lose. We fail to do what we said we would do. We fail to be the example. We fail others, our co-workers, spouses, friends, and ourselves. Others lose trust in us, we lose credibility, we lose relationships and even jobs. Procrastination will destroy your life. It will erode your foundation, causing everything to fall apart. We have to break-free from procrastination. We have to break- free from the easy way, break- free from laziness. We need to realize the destructiveness that procrastinating can and will bring into our lives. Then, we need to have the discipline, fortitude, strength, and the heart, to do what we know needs to get done, TODAY! We need to accept the power of delayed-gratification into our life. We need to fight our natural desires and instincts. The natural desire and instinct to take the easy route, to be lazy, to procrastinate. We have to be focused, stay focused, on today. Focused on doing what needs to get done, today. Focused on being who we need to be, today.
