“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” — Mark Twain
I must admit, I often put things off. Is that true for you today too? And, yes, some of the things that are put off are never actually done. And if they’re important – then that’s a problem. The bill that doesn’t get paid on time, the birthday or anniversary that’s missed, the friend who doesn’t get a telephone call … and then one day, it’s too late.
In the Bible we have a book called Proverbs – which are basically that, proverbs – which according to the dictionary are “short popular sayings that express effectively some commonplace truth or useful thought.” And Proverbs 6:4 (NLT) says: “Don’t put it off; do it now! Don’t rest until you do.”
So many people are looking at how to get ahead in life – well, “the secret … is getting started.” Just get started – then, before you know it, you will get ahead!
