How many of you have set your mind to do a task, only to be pulled in another direction? Or maybe you were going to work on that paper, or clean those dishes, but the cat video seemed much more appealing. Distraction, procrastination, or whatever else you want to call it, is a common trick that the enemy uses.
I’ll use this week for example. The goal was to have some posts written and scheduled out for at least this week. That clearly has not happened because my focus has been pulled elsewhere. I have noticed that whenever I am on the cusp of something, something that will better my life and others, I get distracted.
Work life and personal dramas can cause us to neglect our goals or tasks. You see, the enemy doesn’t want us to be successful. He wants us to stay where we are, never growing, never advancing.
Starting today, I want you to write out one task that you will accomplish for each day. Just start off with one, and then see how you feel after pushing through the distractions. You should feel less stressed and joyful because you have one less thing on your plate. Be mindful that you may see an increase in distractions arise. The enemy has plans to harm us and does not want us to be prosperous.
