What’s the most important thing you’re putting off? And why haven’t you done it yet? What do you need to make it happen?

Although the question doesn’t have the word procrastination in it, I think there is an element of procrastination in most things that are being put off.

The simple answer: my dissertation.

I am working on writing but as my advisor says, “Life intervenes.”

Rheumatoid arthritis, two busy teens who do not have the legal means to drive, and a full time appointment as pastor provide plenty of life intervention.

To make it happen, I should follow Nike’s advice: Just do it.

    that’s funny, I have a file on my desk marked “Nike” – it includes various things that I just need to…well, you know.

    also, I think you forgot to mention full-time pastor work in your list of things that intervene. Just sayin’.
