The longer you wait to do something you should do now, the greater the odds that you will never actually do it. (John Maxwell, leadership author and speaker)
Many have expressed the same idea in different words. Maxwell calls it “The law of diminishing intent.” Others might speak of it simply as procrastination: “Don’t do today what you can put off till tomorrow.” Or “mañana.” Many of us have sadly learned a hard lesson when we have put off something important. Determine now to set your priorities and do first things first.
When you make a promise to God, don’t delay in following through, for God takes no pleasure in fools. Keep all the promises you make to him (Ecclesiastes 5:4).
