A handsome young man
He could have no deceit in him
The smile on his face said it all
His name was Nate
But the most surprising thing was
I had known him all my life
I also found out
That he had seen many years
Yet he was not old
I lived with him all my life
He came around when I was about to make decisions
And I ended up never making them
Nate helped me enjoy the now
And not do the important
And when I had to do all the work
Nate was nowhere to be found
When I always needed a friend to help out
And right after I was done
Nate shows up to have some fun
And with Nate as a friend
I was on the slow lane of life
While others were busy making it
I was in the red zone
Nate introduced me to more friends
And they were all alike
I needed to get a life
I had lost a lot of time with Nate
So I decided
To deal with all I needed to NOW!
And achieve all I could
Not later but immediately
Of course Nate disappeared while I worked
And I did miss him a lot
But one day he finally appeared
I told him the truth; I was done with him
My life was better off without him
Nate didn’t argue with me
He said I had learnt
And I had aborted his purpose
As he walked out of the door
He looked back at me
Smiled and said
“My full name is PROCRASTINATE”
You know as well as I do that we all have a lot of dreams, visions, gifts, tasks, assignments, and a lot of things lined up in our minds that we need to do.Even what we want to become. Most of the times we are held back by a force called procrastination. We just put off what we should do now to a later time. We won’t move forward if we keep up with this pattern.
We must begin whatever needs to be done NOW. Don’t wait till next week, tomorrow or next year! That’s what people on the Victory Path do, they have the NOW mentality. Write out about 5 things you have always wanted to do since that you haven’t. It could even be your childhood dream. It is not too late. Start to do them now. There is no place called ‘the future’. The future you dream of will come on a day like today. So start NOW! And stop being friends with Nate!
