This is one of those days where everything that I see is pointing to what I need to change. The irony is that I already know what I need to change but I just canâ€™t seem to get me to cooperate and move in the right direction.
Procrastination and laziness have dominated my work life. Occasionally I hit my deadlines with out any real struggle. More often than not Iâ€™m struggling until the wee hours trying to get done what I should have gotten done a week before. This weekend my procrastination caught up with me and caused me to be late on everything. Why is not important. That I let it happen is the only real story.
Every morning I get a couple of daily devotionals. One of them today said that I donâ€™t have to fall into this path any more. Today I am free from stumbling around. All I have to do is be diligent in my pursuit of what I know to do. I canâ€™t help but giggle. I KNOW I need to be diligent. Iâ€™m just not.
I was reading a post over at Freelance Gigs about a renegade muse and it reinforced the devotional. There is always an excuse for not doing what I need to do. But it is only when I make myself do it that I am free from falling.
I have a schedule that I am determined to follow. I may have started out a few minutes behind this morning, but Iâ€™m not going to let that be another excuse to give up and fall down. Iâ€™m determined to press forward with all diligence until I reach my destination!
