I got next year’s reading list for my academic program, and I’m chomping at the bit to get started. But I have a big assignment due for this year first.
Christmas worship needs planning. But first there’s a youth retreat this weekend.
Those summer youth trips aren’t going to organize themselves. And neither is my credit card reconciliation–due in two days–going to assemble itself and turn itself in.
I am never more responsible about advance planning than when I’m facing some urgent deadline.
