“God has promised forgiveness to your repentance; but he has not promised tomorrow to your procrastination.”
St. Augustine, (November 13, 354 – August 28, 430)
Procrastination. My longtime enemy and the enemy of many writers.
- To-do lists don’t work for me. I’m not driven by placing tick marks next to a task.
- Guilt is a poor motivator–unless you’re my mother.
- Success? This can actually be a de-motivator.
One thing motivates me: Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. Colossians 3:23-24 (NIV)
What motivates you? How do you use that to your advantage?
