Why is it that we always wait to the very last minute to do anything? I am the worst at this. Ask anyone who knows me, and they’ll tell you that I’m the King of Procrastination! But why?
It’s funny the sense of urgency that we get in the 11th hour. We came closer to our old neighbors, when we put our house up for sale. I made some of my closest friends, weeks before I graduated high school. I finished all my high school and college papers, the night before. Okay, okay, the class before… Ask anyone who is given a few months to live how their sense of urgency is.
We don’t have to wait for a huge life event to change our sense of urgency. What if we did live our lives like every hour is the 11th hour? How would your life look different? Would you laugh more? Love deeper? Have that conversation you have been wanting to have? Talk to your neighbor? Make a new friend? Don’t be like me and wait for the 11th hour, live life with a new sense of urgency. What are you waiting for?
