When it comes to doing it today versus procrastinating till tomorrow: some get it done, others wait till the last minute, and some others do work-related tasks promptly but procrastinate the intangible items in their lives.
Procrastination makes easy things hard, and hard things harder. It is like a credit card: It’s a lot of fun until you get the bill.
Well, if we were told we have only one month to live, some delayed things take on a sudden urgency and we would scramble to do them.
Since we usually don’t know how long we have to live, let us remember to do those important things we have delayed. Pick up the phone and call family or friends whom you’ve been meaning to call. Tell them something you’ve been meaning to tell them, such as “I love you” or “I forgive you”. Write that note you wanted to write. Do that good deed you’ve been meaning to do.
The world is better, kinder, happier, and much more fulfilling when we take time to do the good things we know we have to do. I urge you to take time today.
