The Longterm Mindset

Updated: Apr 17, 2023

This blog being written by me is very fitting, because I am one of the best procrastinators that I know. I procrastinate so many things, and by the grace of God, I continue to be successful, which unfortunately is the reason I continue to procrastinate. Truth be told, I procrastinated writing this particular blog as well, I also may have done it just for the sake of writing that line, but let’s not dwell on that fact. Procrastination isn’t a sin, but it is very detrimental because, as we all know, tomorrow is not promised. I remember reading a post that said, “Procrastination is the arrogant assumption that God owes you another chance to do tomorrow what he gave you the chance to do today.” Let me tell you, that slapped me in the face and shook my core because WOW. This post reminded me that I cannot guarantee I will have the ability to do what I put off for the next day. And if we didn’t know, some doors that God opens for us are time sensitive; just like how if you’re 15 minutes late for a doctor’s appointment you could be turned away, if we take too long to check in for our divine appointments — we will miss our slot. And unlike doctor’s appointments, these can’t always be rescheduled.

Procrastination can steal the opportunities that God places before you, procrastination is a thief — it steals our free will. Free will is the gift we have been given by God to make our own decisions and effectively carve our own path, wherever it may lead us. When we procrastinate, we usually end up being pressured into action because of deadlines and we are effectively backed into a corner. In these situations we no longer have the peace of mind to look over what we have done and truly admire God’s work and grace that is meant to shine through us. When we do what is expected of us, when it is expected of us, there is a sense of relief and accomplishment we feel; and furthermore there is a ray of pride that comes from God because we were obedient regardless of any hesitations we may have harbored.
