The longer you wait to do something you should do now, the greater the odds that you will never actually do it. (John C. Maxwell, leadership author and speaker)
The big word for this habit is procrastination, which as Charles Dickens said “. . . is the thief of time.” It seems to be a widespread human trait to want to wait until tomorrow to do something we dislike or are afraid to attempt. But Maxwell reminds us of the greater tragedy in waiting: we probably won’t get around to do it tomorrow or even the next day.
Don’t put it off; do it now! Don’t rest until you do (Proverbs 6:4)
