There have been seasons in my life when I knew what steps I needed to take to move me towards my goals, but for some reason I put them off. Putting off what you know you need to do produces a miserable life. Nothing feels right. Nothing tastes right. You can’t enjoy anything in your life when you know you haven’t done what you should be doing.
Victor Kiam was right, “Procrastination is opportunity’s assassin.”
I have discovered that people procrastinate for many different reasons. Some people procrastinate because of fear. If that is you, you must learn to not give in. A big life says no to fear. Others procrastinate because they are perfectionists who are always waiting for the perfect time to do what they know they need to do. If that is you, understand that there is never a perfect time. All you have is today. Make the most of this moment. Today, please do those things you know you need to do. Stop killing your opportunities. Decide what next steps you need to take and take them. That is the only way you will ever live a truly big life.
