View Full Version : waiting until tomorrow ????

The problem with waiting until tomorrow is that when it
finally arrives, it is called today. Today is yesterday's
tomorrow. The question is what did we do with its
opportunity? All too often we will waste tomorrow as we
wasted yesterday, and as we are wasting today. All that could have been accomplished can easily elude us, despite our intentions, until we inevitably discover that the things that might have been have slipped from our embrace a single, unused day at a time.

Each of us must pause frequently to remind ourselves that the clock is ticking. The same clock that began to tick from the moment we drew our first breath will also someday cease.

Time is the great equalizer of all mankind. It has taken away the best and the worst of us without regard for either. Time offers opportunity but demands a sense of urgency.

When the game of life is finally over, there is no second
chance to correct our errors. The clock that is ticking away
the moments of our lives does not care about winners and
losers. It does not care about who succeeds or who fails. It
does not care about excuses, fairness or equality. The only
essential issue is how we played the game.

Regardless of a person's current age, there is a sense of
urgency that should drive them into action now - this very
moment. We should be constantly aware of the value of each and every moment of our lives - moments that seem so insignificant that their loss often goes unnoticed.

We still have all the time we need. We still have lots of
chances - lots of opportunities - lots of years to show what
we can do. For most of us, there will be a tomorrow, a next
week, a next month, and a next year. But unless we develop a sense of urgency, those brief windows of time will be sadly wasted, as were the weeks and months and years before them.
There isn't an endless supply!

So as you think of your dreams and goals of your future
tomorrow, begin today to take those very important first
steps to making them all come to life.

That is so true....

We still have all the time we need. We still have lots of
chances - lots of opportunities - lots of years to show what
we can do.
We should seriously try to do as much as possible...

steps to making them all come to life.

Masha'Allah this is great! As well as being appsolutely true.....

I usually get over taken by the evils of laziness.....But sometimes, when I think of delayin sumthin important....I say this in my head:

"Don't let your nafs get over you.....Fight the nafs.....don't let it win over u" and it usually works (requires willpower :p)
