🟥 Take Action

Procrastination, where does it start?

By asking ourselves what responsibility we want to avoid.

Are you a person who sees something that needs completion and does it? Do you encourage growth and complete tasks systematically? Are you often frustrated with the lack of urgency from your team? Then today’s mentoring session is for you? Pull up a seat, grab your Bible, a notebook, and pour a cup of tea. I will share three ways I jump over the hurdles of procrastination, contentment, and poor leadership while staying in my lane using scripture, prayer, and love. 

  • Clarify

Step One 

Hurdles of Procrastination-  Identify what you want to avoid. Use Colossians 3:32 to motivate you.

  • Organize

Step Two 
To overcome complacency meditate on Revelation 3:15-16.

  • Prepare

Step Three 
Stay in your lane and lead by using Philippians 2:3.

Scriptures for Meditation:

Parable of the Ten Virgins (Matthew 25:1-13), Faithful Servant (Luke 12:35-48), Wedding Feast (Matthew 22:1-14)

James 4:17 “So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is a sin.”

Hebrews 12:11 “For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.”
