We all tend to put off doing things we either don’t want to do or we know will take a lot of energy!
I began my message on Sunday by saying, “Hello. My name is Randy and I am a procrastinator!”
I was holding a copy of my edited proposal draft, which we wrote about recently. I have been putting off making all of the corrections because I know it’s going to require a lot of time and energy. It’s not so much that I didn’t want to do it as much as I wanted to have dedicated time for it.
In my message, I said that we usually get around to doing things when it becomes urgent. Well, this project has finally become urgent. We need to mail our corrected drafts by tomorrow so that our dissertation committee will have time to read them prior to our proposal hearings in two weeks.
I used part of my day off yesterday to complete the corrections. It took about 4 hours, I believe. I still have a little work to do before printing/mailing tomorrow afternoon, but the bulk of the work is now complete. I feel much better now! 🙂
(BTW, the point of my message was that evangelism is urgent for the church: “Operatives are needed for God’s search and rescue mission!”)
Well, what kinds of things do you tend to procrastinate and put off?
