Procrastination is easier than preparation. That is also completely backwards of getting anything done. However, we all have things that we put off because we think in the back of our minds that it can wait till later.
Think about it. We all have said things such as:
- I will take that bill to the post office tomorrow.
- I will wash the dishes before bed – then you go to sleep and wake up and they are still in the dishwasher.
- I will fold the laundry tomorrow.
- I will write that blog post later.
- I will answer that email later.
- I will return that phone call later.
Then in some strange Criss Angel way…POOF! Time has escaped you. Once time passes, you can never get it back. If you live always trying to catch up, you will find yourself living in the city of Regret.
Procrastination is never good.
You know you have something that you want to accomplish.
Do it. Just get out there and start on something. Everything you do is preparation for what you ultimately want to accomplish. You cannot get to the dream without taking the baby steps at the beginning.
It is about the process.
The process is what defines you. It is a journey. The process challenges you, changes you, molds you, shapes you. When you get to the dream (the end product) you are never the same person that you were in the beginning. Why? The process.
The process explores the depths of who you are.
You will learn things about yourself by going through the process. Some good. Some not so good. However, you may have never found out any of these things without going through the process.
The process is preparation.
The whole time you are going through the process you are working. You are making your work better. You are refining your art. You are beginning to see yourself in a different way.
Whatever you do, don’t stop.
Don’t stop. Don’t quit. Don’t throw in the towel. Don’t give up.
God is preparing you for what He has prepared for you. When you get to your dream you will be thankful for the process. When you get to the dream, you will be prepared for how to handle it because you were preparing for it during the process.
