Procrastination is one of the most common and deadliest of diseases and its toll on success and happiness is heavy. (Wayne Gretzky, Canadian athlete)

Or, as Victor Kiam said, “Procrastination is opportunity’s assassin.” It’s a widespread “disease” among multitudes of people. We just find it so much easier to put off any task—unpleasant or worthwhile–that waits to be done. Too often we find ourselves saying, “If only I had …,” thinking of those really good ideas that we didn’t follow through on. As Nike says, “Just do it.”

When you make a promise to God, don’t delay in following through. . . Keep all the promises you make to him (Ecclesiastes 5:4).
