“No more Procrastination”
Procrastination- to put off or defer until a later time, to postpone, delaying
These are comfort phrases that we use to procrastinate!
I’ll do it next week
I’ll get to it tomorrow
I’ve got time Let’s wait until next time
It won’t kill you to wait

Procrastination is a convenient opportunity for lazy or fearful people to delay responsibilities.
It also has an element of self destruction Proverbs 19:15 Ecc 10:18
Some people procrastinate because they are not confident about their self or their ability in God. This is why it is important to encourage each other. Hebrews 3:13
