Procrastination seriously drains our energy and our morale. What remains undone nags at us. What are you avoiding? Make a list of items and then review each one. Does it really need to be done? After you've reviewed your list, prioritize it and start one task today. Please do not procrastinate taking one minute to write down your answer to this question. Capture it on paper and this will help build awareness, commitment and discipline.
"The greatest amount of wasted time is the time not getting started." -- Dawson Trotman
“Smile at each
other, smile at your wife, smile at your husband, smile at your children,
smile at each other -- it doesn't matter who it is -- and that will help
you to grow up in greater love for each other.”
~ Mother Teresa We live in a time where people do not see the value in others. There are so many people who are concerned with the needs of self that they turn away from the needs of others. There is a quote by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr that stands out to me, "Everybody can be
great...because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You
don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of
grace. A soul generated by love." Giving back does not require much, all you have to do is remember one thing, No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted.
