What does deferred action and procrastination have in common? Yup, u got it! Putting off what you needed to do yesterday for tomorrow, next week, next month, and/or next year. Canadian Hockey player Wayne Gretsky said,”Procrastination is one of the most common and deadliest of diseases and its toll on success and happiness is heavy.” A. Michael Houdmann cited, “The Bible commends hard work and industry (Proverbs 12:24; 13:4) and warns against sloth and slackness (Proverbs 15:19; 18:9). One cure for procrastination is more diligence, regardless of the task. The Christian should be supremely motivated to be diligent in his work, since he is ultimately serving the Lord. “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men” (Colossians 3:23). If we put our hearts into our work, as this verse says to do, we will probably find it difficult to procrastinate too much.” So what action steps have you deferred completing in the last 7 days? The bottom line is we all need to stay on the positive side of task management.  Especially when it comes to your salvation, serving, family time, and spreading the Gospel message. Time killer are out there and the best way to combat them is to gain awareness of time wasted and time value. Time is the scarcest resource, and unless it’s managed, nothing else can be managed.
