I struggle daily with procrastination. However, I have found accountability helps! From experience, I ALWAYS feel better when I accomplish even the smallest task.
I picked the Amplified Bible for this one because I need to remember I can rely on His strength for anything I face – including every task and challenge. What about you?
Philippians 4:13 (AMP)
I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].
Share a goal, a struggle, a prayer request or leave a comment to build up someone else as we seek to overcome procrastination. You can use a pseudonym (fake name) if you want.
Also, check out the 60 Minute Challenge Blog where you can set your timer and see what you can get done for the next 60, 30, 15 or 5 minutes.
Put a dent in a project you’ve already begun – or need to start, such as: washing the dishes or working on a work or school paper, etc. Or set the timer to see how much of the house you can dust before it goes off, etc. Get the idea?!
It can be a fun and effective way to get moving.
