Putting Off My Procrastination

January 27, 2011

Here are some words I would be wise to regularly remind myself:

No unwelcome tasks become any the less unwelcome by putting them off till tomorrow. It is only when they are behind us and done, that we begin to find that there is a sweetness to be tasted afterward, and that the remembrance of unwelcome duties unhesitatingly done is welcome and pleasant. Accomplished, they are full of blessing, and there is a smile on their faces as they leave us. Undone, they stand threatening and disturbing our tranquility, and hindering our communion with God. If there be lying before you any bit of work from which you shrink, go straight up to it, and do it at once. The only way to get rid of it is to do it.

Alexander MacLaren (1826–1910)

    I really like this as it applies to so much that we do or not do.

    I’ve found those things, be it work related or even people related, that I sometimes dread and put off, often times once confronted and accompished seemed so easyily done, that I wondered what I was afreaid of in the first place. Good post..
