BUT…I will say, I work so much better under pressure. I know that’s the “procrastinators” creed. Although it is better to be more disciplined, my creative juices and energies seem to be turned on by the mere fact that it’s got to be done and DONE NOW!
I remember recognizing my mired ways when a freshman in college and I pulled my first all nighter, writing a research paper in one night. HA! What a joke. I remember I met the deadline and I usually do, it’s just the undo pressure I put on my self to perform and to perform with an excellent outcome that bothers even me. When and how do we demand more of ourselves and determine that we are not going to allow that part of us rule and reign?
I believe that God gives us grace in those instances, but it is up to us to take the first step to show God that we are serious about turning around a point of action in our lives that clearly is in need of organization and is one that should be more closely controlled.
As God requires excellence as a prerequisite of His proof that we love Him, I believe we should also give Him the Glory in actions and deeds, during good and bad times. As we purposefully live for Him, we should be more mindful of his expectations and purpose to fulfill His desire for us. Besides procrastination begets stress and stress can lead to a premature death.
So starting today, I vow to STOP PROGRASTINATING. I will work toward becoming a more organized person who is more closely self controlled in the planning and implementation of all things as they relate to God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit’s Will for my life.
