Avoid Stress Do It Now

For years the business world promoted the mantra, "Do it now." The idea is a nuclear attack on procrastinators who may be busy, but they are merely catching up. This is usually the result of putting the doing of things off until things get better.

In his latest book, Saying It Well Chuck Swindoll gives this bit of advice for achieving above average with less pressure: "If you can get it done now, do it; the future comes with no guarantee you'll have the time or opportunities available to you today."

Chucks advice is one reason experienced supervisors give assignments with an expected completion date. If you are in any leadership position, including family, learning to be your own supervisor should be the order of the day. I have little claim to fame, a larger one to infamy, but I decided around 38 years ago, following a major life crash, to never again lay my head upon a pillow on Saturday night wondering, "What on am I going to preach tomorrow?"

The principle: Get the important done first the minutia later and that only if you cannot delegate it. Count the organized men God used in scripture verses those with poor work habits and the difference is dramatic.

Christ in John 9:4 "I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work."
