Matthew the thought never crossed my mind that you were being rude. I am glad someone got the joke.
This is an old blog. When I first answered it I said about the same thing, if I remember correctly. Many took it seriously.
Happy Ha Ha to those who got the joke.

Elder, I was refering to your "I will tell you later" response by the way. Just in case you thought I was being rude.

I will tell you later, OK.
---Elder on 3/12/07|
Well, I guess now is a good time to explain my answer.
I put you in the same place that you and I both put God sometimes. He directs us to do something and we just say "Later" in our heart.
Of all the years I spent in the Military I was NEVER late for duty. I have procrastinated in many things God has asked me to do. When I realized it I had to search my heart to find where my treasure was.
Do the same thing.
Stop being late to duty for God.
Stop putting Him off till later.

Elder might have told you the answer.

Stopping procrastination is easy: When you have a strong urge to do something, simply get off your rear end and whether you feel like doing it or not, just do it.
That reminds me, last week my wife asked me to clear my desk from the mountain of paper I have......

Dear El and others,
I gotta give you a straight up answer on this because I am the worlds most procrastinating person.
We joke about it but in reality it is not pleasing to God,he calls it being slothful.
So what's the answer?I'll share a portion of my morning prayer.
"God please help me to accomplish everything you would have me to do today and may you be glorified by my work,let me not be slothful or lazy but do all you want me to do,thank you,praise your Holy name".

Was gonna laugh but I'll wait....or should I now?

el: Sometimes procrastination is a symptom of something like Attention Defecit Disorder. I know because I suffer from both.
My suggestion, make a list of things that need to get done in a day, and start working on it. Make the first thing prayer. If you find yourself off track, get back on track ASAP.
It takes practice to discipline yourself, but you can do it.
