Do It Now
Hello Friend, this is Daniel Kolenda. We’ve been talking about discovering God’s will for our lives and today I want to talk to you about one of the enemies of your potential – procrastination.
Twenty percent of people identify themselves as chronic procrastinators. Their procrastination impacts every area of their lives. They miss many opportunities. In fact, their dawdling is so reliable some companies count on it for profitability, offering, for instance, generous rebates that they know will never be redeemed.
I encountered a book once that changed my life even though I never actually read it. In fact, I never even cracked open the cover, and I have no idea who wrote it. All I needed to see was the title: Do It Now! I was very good at inventing reasons a certain critical action could not be taken at that moment. There were always a myriad of reasons more planning or strategizing was necessary before something could be done. But when I saw the title of that book, something amazing happened. I think the Holy Spirit must have used it to convict me because afterward when I was tempted to procrastinate, I started to hear that little phrase ringing in my ear, “Do it now!” It made a huge, positive difference in my life. I pray that from now on, you will also begin to hear those words ringing in your ears—“Do it now!” It will change your life as well!
This is Daniel Kolenda
