STOP AND THINK – To live without deadlines is to live an inefficient, unorganized life, drifting with the breeze of impulse on the fickle wave of moods. (Charles Swindoll, minister and author)

Some people work easily with deadlines. Others of us prefer a freer lifestyle without deadlines. Swindoll points out their value, however: “We set deadlines because they help us accomplish the essentials—they disciple our use of time.” If we are to give account of how we used time, it would be wise to keep the end in sight.

For lack of discipline [the wicked] will die, led astray by their own great folly (Proverbs 5:23).
