Those Important Things You Keep Putting Off

“Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task.”

— William James

They’re important.

It’s remarkable how much effort it is to push a shopping cart with this much water in it.

Those nagging must-do’s that are always in the back of your mind.

Your will. The emergency preparations. A first aid kit. Learning CPR. Life, disability, and long-term care insurance.

These are things for your family. Things you may not want to do. But they are important and the longer you leave them undone, the heavier they will become.

If you have trouble motivating yourself to get them done, try viewing them as a gift. A gift of your time.

Plus, you’ll be a little more prepared to make a difference should that disaster strike.

Yesterday’s gift of time … Replaced all the water we used during the water emergency the other day. … It was satisfying to know that our family is a little more prepared for the next disaster when I sat down later to read story to my daughters.

Our perception of time is key to how we use our time. The most fundamental way to change that perception is to give our time. This opens us up to new opportunities and ideas from which we can build to really make a difference. ... Yes, we *do* have time to make a difference!
