“We can’t afford to waste a minute, must not squander these precious daylight hours in frivolity and indulgence ….Don’t loiter and linger, waiting until the very last minute. Dress yourselves in Christ, and be up and about.” Romans 13:13-14 MSG
The habit of procrastination takes a two-fold toll on its victims. First, important work goes unfinished; second, valuable energy is wasted in the process of putting off the things that remain undone. Procrastination results from an individual’s short-sighted attempt to postpone temporary discomfort. What results is a senseless cycle of delay, followed by worry followed by a panicky and often futile attempt t “catch up.” Once you acquire the habit of doing what needs to be done when it needs to be done, you will avoid untold trouble, worry, and stress. Learn to defeat procrastination by paying less attention to your fears and more attention to your responsibilities.
