The dictionary.com definition of procrastination is “to defer action; delay”.
Is this you? Do you constantly put off what you know you should do for some reason or another? Do you find yourself doing something, but not the thing you should be doing? Do you feel unmotivated to take action?
I could ask so many other questions on procrastination, but they are unimportant. The important thing is to stop deferring and take forward action.
I guess there is one question that you may have “Where is this coming from?”
Personally, I have had too much deferred action and this past weekend was a wake up call.
I guess the combination of not moving as well as I would have liked during a volleyball tournament, not being able to move much at all after the tournament and hearing a sermon on long-suffering and self-control could do that.
Whatever it is that you have been putting off, please stop. It’s not only holding you up, but it’s also holding up a host of other people who need what only you can bring into their world.
As for me, there are 3 things I’m going to stop putting off:
- Spending time with God
- Get Ready Athletics
- My personal workouts
Stay tuned as I share the steps of forward action for each.
What are you going to stop putting off?

It’s official. I have earned my Youth Fitness Specialist Certification from the International Youth Conditioning Association (IYCA). The IYCA is the premier international authority with respect to Youth Fitness & Youth Sports Training for professionals who work with young athletes and youth fitness participants aged 6 – 18.
With this additional certification, I am better able to develop specific programs for youth and young athletes to not only improve sports performance, but to offer education and development for kids of all skill and fitness levels. It is my aim to develop a healthy, active culture among youth in the towns of Morrisville, Cary, and vicinity.
I’m excited to implement the ideas learned while studying and look forward to sharing them with the youth that I work with now and will work with in the future.

Write down all of your little victories throughout the day.
My favorite sport is baseball which is a sport that has been described by many as a game of failure. The greatest hitters of all time are successful only 3 out of 10 times. According to Baseball-Reference.com, 359 out of 360 teams have lost more than 30% of their games. That definitely could have one think that there’s a lot of losing involved.
However, I believe baseball like life is full of little victories. We won’t get a hit every time or win every game, but we can definitely learn from each time at the plate and game that is played. Be thankful for each opportunity to participate and do your part and strive to do better with each opportunity. That is how we appreciate the little victories. (more…)
