Procrastination Elimination

Last Sunday, Oakway United started a new sermon series entitled “One Day…Some Day.”  This was inspired by a blog post from Pastor Steven Furtick.  For week 1, New Year’s Day, the topic was procrastination elimination.  As a rural pastor, one of my goals is help people achieve their God given dreams.  Here are some great quotes I found on procrastination elimination:

“Until you value yourself, you will not value your time.

Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.” ~ M. Scott Peck-author of the Road Less Traveled
“You may delay, but time will not.” ~Benjamin Franklin
“Procrastination is opportunity’s natural assassin.” ~Victor Kiam, former owner of New England Patriots and Remington
My text was Proverbs 12 this week.  For the most part, the word laziness is used because procrastination is just a fancy word for laziness.
“The best way to get something done is to begin.” ~Author Unknown
There’s never a better time to get a fresh start than New Year’s.  Here are few books that inspired me to get started and stop procrastinating this year:

    Is it ironic that I’m procrastinating as I read this?
    Regardless, I’ve found myself reading Proverbs 12 after this post and it’s been quite helpful. To be quite honest, I’ve found myself coming to this portion of the Bible often for all kinds of reasons. It’s a great passage that deals with many of the issues (usually stemming from laziness) that we all deal with.
    Thank you for the helpful reminder that I need to really “Get off my donkey”!
