As we begin, let me give you this reminder from the Word of God. Colossians 3:23 says: "And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men."

Vince Lombardi said, “The greatest accomplishment is not in never falling, but in rising again after you fall.”

Today, we are continuing with part 2 of the section titled, "Attitude Adjustment".

The book is written in a conversation format, and today’s conversation starter is: So procrastination is bad and we should all try to do something about it. But it still seems that with the innumerable problems besetting each of us, the question of whether we do something today or tomorrow is hardly a primary concern.

As a matter of fact, it is. So often it is the key to those other problems, large or small. Consider, for example, typical procrastinators whose problems are either created or intensified by delay:

  • The compulsive drinker who resolves to contact Alcoholics Anonymous “the very next time I have a blackout.”
  • The worker who is going to confront the boss about that raise “when the time is right.”
  • The father who plans to spend some time with his kids “when work pressures aren't so great.”
  • The office manager who has some ideas that would increase efficiency, but who is waiting “until things settle down” to implement them.
  • The salesman who postpones a call on a major prospect, fearing rejection because “the company hasn't had a good year.”
  • The woman who is going to stop smoking “as soon as I get pregnant.”
  • The high school student who is going to establish some good study habits “as soon as I get into college.”
