Week 12: Procrastination is the Grinch that Steals Your Future

A Tree Without Ornaments is Just a Tree

It can be planted anywhere in the world.  Anyone can own it, water it, and enjoy the view.  It has no adornments, no decorations, no story to tell.  In short, it’s bland.  Just a treat from Mother Nature providing oxygen when we aren’t paying any attention to the lonely old tree.  At Christmas, we turn it into a piece of art, a representation of our past, and something to be admired.

Christmas Ornaments are Symbols…

What would happen if they were stolen?

GrinchThe Grinch lurks within each of us all year round in the form of Procrastination.  Does any of this sound familiar?

“I’ll get to it tomorrow.”
“We can go there next year.”
“Nah, I don’t feel like doing that right now.”
“No rush, it’s always going to be there some other time.”

Time continues to tick by and the Procrastination Grinch continues to win.  To steal our hopes, dreams, and desires.
