I'll get to that...tomorrow

Procrastination.

Putting off what needs to be done.
So easy to do, but why?
Delaying the inevitable.

Praying the need will slip away, unnoticed?
Yet it lingers...just the thought of it.

The weight of 'not doing' outweighs the actual 'doing'.
It gets transferred on our Franklin Covey handy dandy Daytimer to the next day,

and then the next day...
day after day,
days turn into weeks.

So much for the habits of highly effective people, that theory just got thrown out the window.

Trust me, I've had my share of setting things aside.  (I actually wrote this yesterday and I'm just posting it today, shhhhh.  Our little secret.) 

The 'I'll get to it later when my busy life slows down.' 
THOSE days never seem to show up on the calendar.

Still waiting.

The list keeps getting longer.
Overwhelming at times.

So I decide to 'do'.
The 'intentional' do.
Not the 'fun things I LIKE to do'.

The necessary.

Then the sigh of relief after it's done, with the added, "Why didn't I just DO this thing a long time ago?!

Proverbs 13:4  "The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied."
