Don't Argue With the Alarm Clock!

Procrastination is an insidious evil. It creeps into our lives and grasps us before we even suspect we are in the wrong. Awareness and a willingness to act ought to become a part of the fiber of our character. There are times when you should not make quick judgments, when you should be judicious in your actions. But the sooner you act to avoid temptation, the better. Dallying over a decision and rationalizing over a situation puts your final verdict in jeopardy, because the scales tend to tip to the side of the half truths. When the alarm clock goes off in the morning, don't argue with it, get up. You are the one who made the decision last night what time to arise today. Make a stand, act decisively. You will begin to like yourself better. Don't put off till later what you can do now. Something important may come up later! And if not you can rest when you are through, without the task still in front of you. Proverbs 6:9-11 "How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? When wilt thou arise out of thy sleep? Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep. So Shall thy poverty come..."

I am guilty of this. I set the alarm and when it alarmed I will adjust the time. It is clear sign of tardiness I admit. We have to wake up the time we declared on our alarm clock because that is our decision in waking up. If we change the time meaning we change our decision. We must learn to decide once and that will be the final. The adjusting of time is simple we are not being real for ourselves. We are fooling our self. Am I hearing myself?
