Most of us procrastinate. If something is uninteresting or overwhelming, we put it off. But there will never be a "perfect" time to get things done.
Ecclesiastes 11:4 cautions: "Those who wait for perfect weather will never plant seeds; those who look at every cloud will never harvest crops" (New Century Version).
Today might not be the perfect time to "plant your seeds" — but when will it ever be? Resources and opportunity will always seem scarce — and motivation will come and go. Nevertheless, we can't allow procrastination to hold us back. We have to remain productive no matter how we feel, no matter what obstacles come our way, and no matter how hectic life gets.
James Albery, an English playwright, wrote:
He slept beneath the moon;
He basked beneath the sun.
He lived a life of "going-to-do,"
And died with nothing done.
As Albery suggests, many people spend their lives talking about what they’re going to do, but die without doing very much. Now, answer this question: What will you do?
