Proverbs 6: 4-5
Don’t procrastinate— there’s no time to lose.
Run like a deer from the hunter, fly like a bird from the trapper!
When we know that we have a task or project to complete waiting to the last minute produces an inferior product. So how do we move beyond procrastination? We make excellence the greater priority. The challenge is “just enough to get by” is the mentality of many people. This produces mediocrity. The pursuit of excellence is a discipline that challenges us to immediately begin projects and engage in precision planning on a personal level and organizational level.
Every workshop attendee deserves to hear the best presentation not one that is just good enough. Every congregant deserves to hear my best sermon not one that is thrown together. Every person attending a meeting deserves to have the best agenda to achieve the mission vision and values of the organization.
Our text focuses our attention on three things that will help us to move beyond procrastination
- The time is now, tomorrow will be to late
- Eliminate distractions, they can be costly
- Passionately pursuit is essential
